After three years of conceptualizing, designing, architecting, and engineering an innovative retirement offering, ARS has been recognized for how it’s redefining retirement income with its patent-pending, innovative product Lifetime Income Builder. This new product, along with the ARDX Platform, has been named a “Wealthies” finalist in Wealth Management’s Awards.
“Many participants don’t know how to best secure their financial futures, and the industry hasn’t necessarily made it easy for them,” said Dave Paulsen, chief distribution officer at ARS. “We at ARS knew we could do better. Our product design philosophy is to put the participant at the center of everything we do, and in doing so, everything else falls into place.”
The journey of working with the ARS family has been a privilege. They have been clear about what they want to create from the beginning – a participant-centered, technology-enabled solution that creates retirement income surety for participants, and ease of integration for recordkeepers.
ARS selected Trility as their technology partner in 2020 to help ARS invent an asset class that reimagines retirement savings and create a technology platform that is flexible enough to meet stakeholder needs across the value chain.
"The journey of working with the ARS family has been a privilege. They have been clear about what they want to create from the beginning – a participant-centered, technology-enabled solution that creates retirement income surety for participants, and ease of integration for recordkeepers.” shared Matthew D Edwards, Trility president and CEO. “The leadership team is experienced, knowledgeable, and decisive, and that has made partnering with them, and building a new system from scratch, a great experience."
In addition to the Lifetime Income Builder, ARS, and Trility have architected and engineered the ARDX Platform, a proprietary middleware solution that streamlines data administration and transmission. ARDX provides a seamless interface for data calculating and transmission, making it easy for recordkeepers to administer TDFs with Lifetime Income Builder across all value chain partners.
