Our Difference. Your Advantage.

Unparalleled governance.

Founded by the Federal Home Loan Bank System in 1943, we do not answer to shareholders, we answer to our clients. Our boards of directors are made up of our clients, Presidents and CEOs, who use our services and place their own futures in our hands. Our Boards serve with excellence and the highest ethical standards and set the very same ones for our organization.

A level of fiduciary protection that is unmatched.

Unmatched fiduciary protection.

With a legacy built serving as an institutional fiduciary, Pentegra offers a level of fiduciary protection that is unmatched in the industry. We deliver an unrivaled level of oversight and accept a higher level of responsibility. Our fiduciary heritage shapes our culture.

No conflicts of interest.

We are not a “Wall Street” firm, or owned by a larger financial services organization, mutual fund or insurance company. As an independent organization, governed by our clients, our focus is to enhance the value of our clients. We partner with firms as a trusted resource to bring an objective perspective and maximum flexibility to every opportunity—to deliver the very best solution for clients.

Client-driven culture.

We were founded by our clients, are owned by our clients, and governed by our clients – simply, we exist for our clients. When we say we are “client driven,” it is not an empty marketing tagline, it’s our DNA. Our solutions begin and end with each client’s real life needs, objectives and goals. Today, we have more than 100 clients who have been with us for over 30 years and maintain a 98% client retention rate.

Deep Expertise and Bench Strength

Our team is comprised of highly-skilled professionals—ERISA attorneys, Enrolled Actuaries, Certified Plan Consultants and specialists in investments, education and compliance. The advantage—access to multiple experts guided by a relationship management team that eases the way for you.

Comprehensive solutions.

Whether you are a financial advisor seeking a fiduciary outsourcing retirement solution for your clients, a client seeking a benefits financing solution to fund an executive benefit plan, or an institutional investor looking for help with your balance sheet, our structure and collaborative culture enable us to align our full resources behind your needs. We deftly draw on our collective resources and team of highly skilled professionals to create exceptional client solutions.
