JHI Wholesaler Ryan Fay named to DCIO Top 10

BOSTON, MA (September 18, 2017)—Aylmer Magill and Ryan Fay of John Hancock Investments were named as two of the Top 100 wholesalers in the retirement industry, earning spots on the National Association of Plan Advisors (NAPA) annual listing. Additionally, Fay was named as one of the Top 10 DCIO wholesalers.

“We’re extremely proud to be recognized for putting plan advisors and their clients first,” said Todd J. Cassler, President of Financial Institutions and Advisory Solutions at John Hancock Investments. “Congratulations to Aylmer, Ryan, and the rest of the DCIO team. With such a deep bench of consultative talent and an extensive suite of offerings for the retirement plan industry—including the most comprehensive target-date fund lineup in the business—we’re well positioned to continue supporting DC plan advisors, sponsors, and their participants.”

Being named to the list involves a three-step process of nomination by NAPA firm partners, voting by NAPA members and other advisors and final vote tallies and selection of the top wholesalers by the NAPA Top Wholesaler Blue Ribbon Committee. This year, NAPA received more nominations than ever before and approximately a third more votes than last year, a record for the award.
