Pentegra :: Company History



Pentegra was founded by the Federal Home Loan Bank System in 1943 to offer a retirement program for its employees. And while we have never lost our focus on local institutions, we have grown along with many of our clients to manage more than 3,500 retirement plans with over $8 billion in retirement plan assets. Today, our clients include corporations, financial institutions and non-profit organizations nationwide, as well as the advisors that serve them.

We are independent - unique among retirement providers - which frees us to concentrate on what matters most to you. Our unbiased approach allows us to fully focus on objectives that meet your goals, and deliver a better bottom line for you and your participants.

You'll notice a big difference in Pentegra's leadership. Our Board of Directors is comprised of our clients - presidents and CEOs who use our products and services every day and place their own retirement future in our hands. Our Board serves in a unique fiduciary role - delivering a level of governance and oversight that is unmatched.

Pentegra has earned the endorsement of trade organizations and industry partners who recognize the need for enduring and trusted retirement providers.

Consider This: Pentegra is a fiduciary.
We offer the unique ability to completely outsource primary fiduciary responsibility for the management of your retirement program - something no other provider that we know of offers.
