Trust Companies and Independent Trust Officers
Trust companies don’t always have in-house investment management platforms, so we offer investment management services specifically to trust companies and independent trust officers to help fill this gap. Our team has strong trust backgrounds, from special needs investment management to foundation investment management.
We help trust companies and independent trust officers:
Provide professional services and relationships to their clients
Assist with fiduciary duties such as the Drafting and Maintaining the Investment Policy Statement
Since we are independent, trust companies and independent trust officers can rest assured that we will not “poach” any of their clients. Instead, we are a dependable partner dedicated to caring for and cultivating trust relationships.
Retirement Plan Sponsors
Sage is a Registered Investment Advisor and qualifies as an Investment Manager under 3(38) of the Employee Retirement Security Act (ERISA), under which we are a fiduciary. We help retirement plan sponsors and trustees with their fiduciary duty to always act in the best interest of the plan.
We help retirement plan sponsors:
Build the investment policy statement
Choose and monitor the investments
Provide quarterly reporting to meet the fiduciary duty to the plan
Become one point of contact so the plan runs smoothly and cost effectively
Retirement plan sponsors are always striving to meet their fiduciary and educational responsibilities. In addition to sharing this load, we can help retirement plan sponsors keep the costs of plans within appropriate ranges.
Centers of Influence
We partner with like-minded CPAs, mortgage brokers, and attorneys to develop mutually beneficial relationships and create trusted spheres of influence our clients can benefit from. We work to develop understandings of each other’s business models and generate efficient referral streams. When our clients know their trusted financial and legal professionals are working as a team, everyone benefits.
