  • Our partners

It has been our privilege to work closely with our clients' accountants, attorneys, investment counsel, brokers, and insurance advisors. Because we sell no investment products, we are involved with an extensive array of legal, tax, accounting, and investment professionals. Each of these professions brings valuable skills to the benefits design and administration process. We attempt to provide these colleagues with tools that will aid them in serving their customers and clients, and to blend our expertise with theirs to the benefit of our mutual clients. In fact, it is most often through referrals by other professionals that John Hannah Corporation is engaged.
