SageView Advisory Group Acquires Remaining Retirement Plan Business from Arnerich Massena
Arnerich Massena Senior Consultant to join SageView team as part of transition
NEWPORT BEACH, California (March 29, 2021) – SageView Advisory Group has acquired the retirement plan services practice of Arnerich Massena, the firm announced today. As part of this transition, Luka Arnerich, CAIA, will join the SageView team as a Retirement Plan Consultant in Portland, Oregon.
Arnerich spent eight years at Arnerich Massena, an independent investment firm based in Portland, Oregon, serving institutional clients with portfolio management, investment policy development, investment menu design, governance support and fiduciary education. His expertise extends from defined contribution, defined benefit and deferred compensation plans to consulting on endowments and foundations.
“This is exciting news for SageView and Arnerich Massena, allowing both firms to continue to focus on our core competencies,” said Randy Long, SageView Founder and CEO. “SageView’s growth since inception has been driven by our dedication to the retirement industry and Luka will make an excellent addition to the team. Furthermore, Luka’s commitment to making an impact on his community aligns with our passion to help those in need through the SageView Foundation. We look forward to working together.”
SageView previously acquired a significant portion of the Arnerich Massena participant-driven retirement plan services practice when Howard Biggs, Jacob O’Shaughnessy, and Stuart Payment joined the firm in 2016.
“As Arnerich Massena shifts our focus exclusively toward private wealth management and endowments and foundations, we are confident that SageView is the right choice for transitioning our remaining retirement business,” said Bryan Shipley, Co-CEO and CIO of Arnerich Massena. “After transitioning much of our retirement plan business to SageView in 2016, we know our clients will continue to be in great hands. We are confident this decision is in the best interests of our clients and our firm and we look forward to supporting our clients through this transition as necessary.”
Arnerich Massena’s remaining retirement plan services practice primarily consists of defined contribution, defined benefit, and deferred compensation retirement plans. These services highlight SageView’s dedication to the retirement industry and align with the continued commitment to helping the community.
