Plan Sponsors

Managing your plan’s administrative requirements can be cumbersome and can slow you from focusing on running your business. We help employers navigate their responsibilities.

Plan Advisors

Participant success is always our compass.  An integral component of this is an investment process that effectively positions participants for success and is also flexible, allowing the advisor to fulfill whatever investment role makes sense for them and their practice.

Third-Party Administrators

Partnering with industry leading TPA firms and investment professionals is what we do. We provide the platform to help these firms deliver innovative solutions and highly personalized service to their clients.

Institutional Partners

Dynamics within the retirement plan landscape are shifting for small recordkeepers with increasing demands for higher levels of service, technology and fiduciary oversight creating a drain on resources and profitability. American Trust Retirement can help small recordkeepers navigate these challenges working with them to outsource parts of the administrative and operational responsibility for their recordkeeping business to us or assuming oversight for all of the operational aspects of the business while they still maintain the relationship with the plan sponsors and participants.
