Libertyville business owner honored as top adviser

Russell Warye, who owns Libertyville-based Benefit Partners Financial Group LLC, was named as one of the 2016 PlanAdvisor Top 100 Retirement Plan Advisers.

Warye, 49, of Glencoe, will receive the award on March 31 during the PlanAdvisor/PlanSponsor Awards for Excellence Dinner in New York. He also is the founder of Russell Warye Inc. in Libertyville.

Warye was recognized in the "Individual Advisers with more than 100 plans under Advisement" segment, based on his plan client base of 111 401(k) plans under management. This is an annual listing of individual advisers and teams that stand out in the industry based on various measures, including the dollar value of qualified plan assets under administration.

The PlanAdvisor Top 100 is compiled from responses to a survey. For an adviser to be eligible for recognition in this year's Top 100, he had to submit a completed entry to the 2015 Retirement Plan Adviser Survey from last September.
