About ARS

Driving an Industry Paradigm Shift

Over the last 20 years, attempts to deliver an easy and effective retirement income solution have fallen short because providers – viewing the challenge through a single, proprietary lens – have focused on adapting their existing income products to fit a particular investment model.

Today’s retirement income crisis is a multidimensional challenge that requires an integrated approach to product development and design. ARS is revolutionizing the market through a smarter approach that challenges traditional thinking to deliver true income innovation.

When you put the participant at the center of everything, all of the pieces fall into place. Our design philosophy is focused on helping drive better participant outcomes, without compromising flexibility or control.

ARS has forged strategic partnerships with some of the industry’s top-rated carriers, largest investment managers and leading plan administrators to align and protect best interests, leverage interdisciplinary synergies, and deliver stronger value across the board. By engaging all stakeholders up front in the process, we’re empowered to develop and deliver solutions that offer greater efficiencies and competitive advantages for every member of the defined contribution (DC) plan value chain.

Solving the retirement income crisis is a multi-dimensional challenge that requires an integrated approach, from solution development to organizational leadership. In forming ARS, we assembled a team of highly successful leaders with a combined 175 years of experience in retirement plans, annuities and asset management.
