Wat Keys Receives National Tax-Deferred Savings Association’s 2019 Elite Advisor Award

On January 30, The National Tax-Deferred Savings Association (NTSA) announced CAPTRUST’s Wat Keys, CFP®, CRPS, as one of four 2019 Elite Advisor Award recipients.

Established in 2014, the NTSA Elite Advisor Award recognizes the contributions of advisors who have advanced best practice standards in the 403(b) and/or 457(b) retirement industry and, in so doing, have improved the ability of American workers to build a successful retirement.

“For me, it comes down to that eighth-grade teacher, that museum director, that research scientist, whose institution has trusted me to manage their family nest egg," says Keys. "Bringing a pioneering service package downstream to smaller not-for-profit organizations means that their families can have top-shelf investment management. I see that as my greatest legacy to my industry.”

The awards were presented during a luncheon at the NTSA 30th Anniversary Summit held at the Westin Tampa Waterside in Tampa, Florida.
