Nyhart Acquires Actuarial Consulting Firm

September 6, 2012 (PLANSPONSOR.com) Nyhart Actuary & Employee Benefits has acquired The Epler Company, a regional actuarial, employee benefits and compensation strategies firm based in San Diego.

The merger gives Indianapolis-based Nyhart a permanent West Coast office, adds expertise regarding employee compensation strategies, and further expands their pension plan design and administration practice group for private, church and public plans.  

The San Diego team will maintain the Epler name and transition to Nyhart over time. They will gain new resources, including daily valuation administration, in-house Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) attorneys and expanded actuarial services. Lin Ball, Epler’s president, will assume the role of director of West Coast Operations for Nyhart.  

Nyhart will keep the existing San Diego office, and retain the entire San Diego staff.
