Retirement & Savings Plan

Saving today means a secure retirement! Eligible employees may participate in the Retirement Savings Plan, a safe harbor 401(k) plan that offers you three ways to save: with a pre-tax deferral, with an after-tax Roth deferral, or both. Westwood helps you save for tomorrow by providing an employer matching contribution of up to 6% of the employee’s contribution. Employer matching dollars are 100% vested at the time of contribution. Full and part time employees age 18 and older are eligible to participate at date of hire. Additionally, each year Westwood may make a profit-sharing contribution to employee accounts, further assisting employees in meeting their retirement goals. An employee is eligible to receive a profit-sharing contribution regardless of whether the employee contributes to a 401(k) plan.

Education & Learning Program

To meet the changing needs of our employees and clients, Westwood provides employees with various ways to grow their skills. The tuition reimbursement program assists employees seeking their degree. The certification and license reimbursement program ensures employees have specific knowledge in their area of expertise, for example CFP or CFA. Monthly talks and lunch and learns provide opportunities for employees to interact with senior leadership and learn more about relevant trends in the industry and at Westwood.
