Press Release

Pentegra and LeafHouse Financial Launch the American 401(k) Pooled Employer Plan

Issued by Pentegra

Aug. 10, 2021

White Plains, NY -- Today, Pentegra, a leading provider of retirement plan and fiduciary outsourcing solutions, announced the launch of a new Pooled Employer Plan (PEP) in conjunction with LeafHouse Financial — the American 401(k) Plan.

Pentegra will serve as the recordkeeper and Pooled Plan Provider (PPP) for the PEP and LeafHouse Financial will serve as investment fiduciary. The collaboration was the natural outgrowth of Pentegra’s fiduciary legacy, encompassing nearly eight decades of multiple employer retirement plan expertise and fiduciary advocacy, along with LeafHouse Financial’s investment fiduciary and investment advisory expertise.

PEPs allow unrelated companies or organizations to band together to create a pooled retirement program. The American 401(k) Plan aims to make it easy and accessible for small businesses to meet the requirements of New York’s Retirement Security for All Act (the Act), which mandates that private employers with five or more employees offer a retirement plan. The plan also offers the opportunity to take advantage of tax credits if employers are starting a new plan.

Said Pentegra President and CEO John E. Pinto, “As one of America’s oldest independent fiduciaries, we believe PEPs offer an ideal way to help make offering a retirement plan easier for businesses.  PEPs allow each adopting employer to reduce its administrative and fiduciary burdens, as the PPP and 3(38) investment fiduciary shoulder responsibilities on behalf of the adopting employers. Pooled retirement benefit plans also allow cost efficiencies for adopting employers based on pooling the plan's assets."

 LeafHouse Financial President and Co-founder, Todd Kading added, “LeafHouse integrates technology and industry knowledge to provide a layer of protection. The American 401(k) Plan PEP strives to deliver  a strategic solution for these businesses by not only meeting the retirement coverage requirements of the Act, but also aiming to help these businesses save time, minimize investment fiduciary risk and reduce the investment workload by outsourcing responsibilities to an  experienced team. With the cost-saving advantages of a PEP, small businesses can now help their employees take advantage of the benefits of a tax-advantaged retirement plan, greatly expanding retirement coverage and helping their employees save for a secure financial future.”
