About Plan Confidence


Plan Confidence® is a consulting service designed to help 401(k), 403(b) and 457 Plan participants:

  • Establish a diversified asset allocation based on your risk tolerance and investment time horizon. 
  • Assess current market & economic conditions to determine:

                 - what funds to invest in   

                 - how much to contribute to each fund  

                 - and when to reallocate funds

Our team of experts will provide professional investment education based on the fund selections available within your company's retirement plan. You keep all of your money in your current plan.  Monthly allocation recommendations will be provided to you by logging into a dedicated website after receiving a monthly reminder e-mail. 

Plan Confidence® is a consulting service offered by Scharf Group, LLC and provided by licensed representatives of NEXT Financial Group, Inc.  Member FINRA/SIPC.  An investment advisory fee will be charged on a semi-annual basis. If for any reason you wish to terminate the consulting service agreement there are NO termination fees, NO surrender fees, and NO exiting fees, whatsoever. You are not locked in to any long-term contracts or obligations. Remember, with Plan Confidence® your funds stay in your plan; you never roll over any of your funds to an outside account for our firm to manage separately.
