Let us help you understand the full range of benefits Amgen’s compensation package offers you, and show you how to more effectively incorporate these packaged benefits within the overall retirement planning process.
Using your benefits wisely can help you pursue your retirement planning goals. Let us help you make the right decision. We can help you in many ways.

Diversifying Your Investments
We believe a balanced portfolio offers a proactive position against negative market volatility and we encourage diversification of investments among different asset classes. This may include active managers – including some that may not be available through some brokers – and passive investments that tend to stand steady over time.
More than that, we can help you balance your portfolio with your other Amgen assets and retirement plan.
*There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversification portfolio. Diversification does not protect against market risk.
