Open Architecture Recordkeeping Platform

We are one of three hundred truly independent recordkeeping firms in the industry today. We do not offer proprietary funds, thus, our independence is an appealing choice for both plan sponsors and advisors. The use of our investment independent open architecture platform affords advisors the resources, flexibility, and access needed to build a high quality investment portfolio which can include mutual funds, exchange traded funds, self-directed brokerage accounts, and managed account services.

We provide not only the access to incorporate the highest quality investment options into the plan but also, the ability to help monitor the funds on a quarterly basis to ensure that you maintain the highest quality of options. This allows the plan sponsor and advisor to give the participants the greatest potential for a successful outcome. We also include other educational tools such as gap analysis communications and reports, online investment fact sheets, Morningstar Research, and automatic rebalancing.


Summit lets you choose how closely we work with you. We can be as "back-office" as you like or as directly involved as you want.
