Doug Parker Sage Rutty

Rochester-based financial services firm Sage Rutty and Company, a Rochester Chamber member, announced that Douglas Parker, CFP, AIF, CHSA, has been named 401(k) Specialist magazine’s Top Advisor by Participant Outcomes for July 2020.

Colorado-based 401(k) Specialist is the only publication exclusively dedicated to equipping retirement plan advisors with the vision, specialized knowledge and cutting-edge technology that are vital to their success in a dynamic marketplace to ensure a secure retirement for Americans through the 401(k) savings vehicle.

Parker is one of a select group of advisors who 401(k) Specialist chooses on a monthly basis in recognition of their success as a plan specialist and the specific methods and measurements they employ. The Top Advisor by Participant Outcomes award acknowledges that participant outcomes are the true measurements of retirement plans’ success, and therefore the most important measurement of a retirement advisor’s success. The award is the recognition and celebration of successful participant outcomes and the advisors, like Parker, who make them possible.

According to Wayne Holly, president of Sage Rutty and Company, this award is validation for not only Parker’s success as an advisor but his very personal approach to advising.

“One thing that’s always impressed me about Doug is how he never forgets that people and relationships are at the center of being a successful advisor. Clients are really looking for the advice and counsel of a fellow human being. They are not looking for a web address and or a software program to help them. They’re looking for personal guidance and education so they can make important life choices. Everything Doug’s done in his 34-year career has been built on that foundational philosophy. Our entire team at Sage Rutty and Company is incredibly proud that Doug’s been selected for this award.”

401(k) Specialist will convene an independent panel of industry experts later this year to select one overall recipient from the monthly finalists to be Top Advisor by Participant Outcomes for 2020.

The announcement of the 2020 Top Advisor by Participant Outcomes will be announced Oct. 25-27 at the EXCEL 401(k) National Conference in Las Vegas. Parker and other leading advisors who’ve won the monthly award will be invited to attend.
