"These strategies are designed to provide plan sponsors and participants with a range of investment choices and truly meaningful diversification," said Harry Clark, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Clark Capital. "With the addition of these strategies, we can offer 401(k) plans portfolios that provide custom-tailored solutions for virtually every participant out there, regardless of individual risk tolerance or age."

Clark Capital is recognized in the 401(k) community for their ability to help advisors pursue retirement business with solutions that aim to manage risk at both the participant and plan sponsor level.  Participant risk is managed with their innovative Navigator asset allocation solutions while plan sponsor risk is mitigated by QDIA capabilities and 3(38) Co-Fiduciary services which are offered at no additional cost when the Clark Capital strategies are included in the line-up.

"We're extremely excited," said R. Michael McAleer, Clark Capital's Vice-President and Director of 401(k) Distribution. "We feel the Navigator solutions are unique among everything being marketed in the DC space and these new portfolios really round out our offering."

  • The Navigator® Fixed Income Total Return strategy implements a tactical approach to the fixed income market to help drive income while attempting to reduce risk.  
  • The Navigator® Global Equity ETF strategy is a global asset allocation portfolio designed to pursue our best ideas globally for the more aggressive investor.   
  • The Navigator® High Dividend Equity strategy focuses on high-quality domestic equities that demonstrate potential to generate and raise their dividends over time.  This portfolio seeks above average dividend yield with a complementary option overlay strategy to help increase the overall yield of the portfolio.

"We feel these strategies really address the wants and needs of the market. Clients are looking for new ideas to manage today's challenging markets and trying to find income in this low interest rate environment," said McAleer.

Clark Capital's Navigator 401(k) Solutions are designed to provide plan sponsors with a range of professionally managed solutions that make it possible for plan participants to invest with confidence as they move toward their retirement goals. These innovative investment options seek meaningful diversification, incorporate multiple asset classes and utilize seasoned institutional managers, and employ alternative and international investments to help meet the client's long-term needs and goals.  As with all of the Navigator 401(k) Solutions, these strategies can be accessed through any of the major open architecture trading platforms.
