Christopher J. McGrath, Principal

Christopher J. McGrath is a founding principal of Retirement Plan Advisors and a member of the firm’s Investment Committee.

Chris began his career serving public sector retirement plans in 1983, working directly with plan participants as a financial advisor/enroller with one of the nation’s leading public sector retirement plan providers.

A few years later, Chris was promoted to Regional Director and, in due course, Regional Vice President. He was responsible for the operations and management of a number of large public sector defined contribution retirement plans, including those of the City of Chicago and Cook County, IL. He also oversaw RFP processes, plan design, investment menu selection, staffing, and compliance issues.

In 2000, with two long-term colleagues, Chris co-founded Retirement Plan Advisors with the goal of offering public sector employers and employees the option of working with an independent Registered Investment Adviser to better address their retirement needs.

Chris has been licensed as a registered representative with FINRA (formerly the NASD) since 1983 and a registered principal since 1985. He is also affiliated with a Registered Investment Adviser, holds FINRA Series 6, 7, 24, 26, 63, and 65 registrations, and is licensed to offer life, accident and health insurance, and variable contracts. He graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education and holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, Chicago.

On a personal note, Chris is married with two daughters.
