Advisor Managed Accounts
Leverage your firm’s investment experience and streamline the rest.
With advisor managed accounts, plan sponsors and participants get access to the personalized advice they’re looking for, while registered investment advisers (RIAs) get a platform to help them deliver their service on a wider scale.
The Difference of Advisor Managed Accounts
Leverage Your Experience
As the RIA, you create the underlying plan-specific investment portfolios. Then, our proprietary portfolio-assignment methodology will assign participants to an asset allocation tailored to their individual situations and goals by combining the portfolios you created.
Connect With Recordkeepers
The service is designed to integrate with a range of recordkeepers to help ensure coverage across your advisors’ books of retirement business. Should you have a preferred recordkeeper that’s not a part of our network, we’ll work with you to try and incorporate them.
Receive Ongoing Support
With more plans seeking out digital advice, AMA is designed to help you strengthen your relationships and attract new clients. Plus, you’ll be supported by our nationwide sales team and may qualify for training sessions, finals presentations, annual plan reviews, and on-site participant support.
