Emmett G. Dupas III

METAIRIE, La. – The National Association of Plan Advisors has published its 2018 list of Top DC Advisor Teams. Emmett G. Dupas III, wealth management advisor with Northwestern Mutual in Metairie, Louisiana, was among those advisor teams recognized on this list. The list includes teams that have an excess of $100,000,000 in Defined Contribution assets under advisement. The announcement was made in a press release.

The 2018 list of NAPA’s Top DC Advisor Teams is available online.

According to a press release from the National Association of Plan Advisors, unlike other lists, this one focuses on individual firms, or what may in a wirehouse environment be referred to as a team, or office, and the assets under advisement related to their defined contribution (DC) practice specifically. This year's publication of the list was also accompanied by the list of the nation’s Top DC Multi-Office Advisor Firms.   

“Since their inception, NAPA’s various industry lists have been a valuable Who’s Who of who matters in the world of retirement plans and retirement plan advisors,” noted Nevin Adams, chief content officer of the American Retirement Association, and editor-in-chief of NAPA-Net, the nation’s leading online resource for retirement plan advisors. “This latest chapter – the NAPA Top DC Advisor Teams, ranked by self-reported DC assets under advisement – presents a compelling case for the positive impact on the nation’s private retirement system.”

The list, which focuses on firms with at least $100 million in AUA, represents more than $640 billion in DC assets under advisement. Significantly, those teams include more than 1200 advisors – and many more support personnel – working to help Americans prepare for a financially satisfying retirement.

“As the nation’s leading voice for retirement plan advisors, we are pleased to highlight these contributions,” noted Adams.

The coincident publication of the Top Multi-Office DC Firms highlights the nearly $2 trillion in AUA, more than 187,000 plans supported, and more than 25 million participants supported by the actions of these firms.
