Morningstar Retirement Manager

Saving for your retirement is easy – but it can be hard to know if your investment selections and savings rate decisions will lead to meeting your retirement goals. To help you feel more in control of your financial future, the SUNY Retirement Plans have added services from the investment professionals at Morningstar Investment Management LLC to offer advice and guidance personalized just for you.

Manage My Plan Manually (Online Advice) – Provides objective online investment advice at no charge from the investment options available under the Plan.  There is no charge for this service.  Features include:

  • Research and reports about the Plans’ investment options.
  • Tools to help you set retirement goals and recommended an asset mix.
  • Specific, independent, objective and professional investment advice to help you create a diversified portfolio.
  • Personalized investment option recommendations that factor in your unique financial situation and savings objectives.

Have Morningstar Manage My Plan (Managed Accounts) – A fee-based managed account program available to participants who would prefer to have Morningstar actively manage their account. Participants who enroll in this service receive a personalized retirement strategy, discretionary asset management, and ongoing oversight to help them meet their retirement goals.  This service is ideal for employees who lack the time or desire to actively manage their retirement account.  Participants who select this service would be charged an annual fee of 0.40 % (0.20% to Voya, 0.20% to Morningstar Investment Management LLC).
