Client commitment, cost competitiveness and core values power company’s growth story
INDIANAPOLIS, IN (Nov. 7, 2018) —OneAmerica® annual retirement plan sales have surpassed the $2 billion mark for the first time in its history as the mid-size carrier continues to deliver relevant and impactful retirement plan solutions through the support of a strong relationship-oriented team. The milestone was reached as sales of workplace-provided plans increased 37 percent year-over-year, with $2.34 billion in sales expected by year’s end, a nearly 20 percent increase from $1.93 billion at the end of 2017.
Specifically, OneAmerica continued to see success in its core focus of tax-exempt, professional services and manufacturing. Tax-exempt, in particular, has seen long-standing growth for the last several years, with this year being particularly strong as it comprises over 50 percent of new business.1 OneAmerica continues to be a leader in the tax-exempt market and serve as a knowledge resource for advisors who want to learn more about the opportunities in this space.
“Achieving the $2 billion milestone is beyond symbolic – it is a recognition that retirement plan advisors and plan sponsors are eager to do business with a company that has a strong footprint in the retirement services market and one that is a good cultural fit with what’s important to them,” said Sandra McCarthy, president of OneAmerica Retirement Services division.
OneAmerica provides award-winning administrative and participant services in support of nearly 12,000 plans with over $63 billion in assets under administration2. A nationwide network of regional sales directors work with a diverse mix of advisors and advisor firms covering a range of organizations with plan-participant assets between $3 million to $250 million.
“We continue to be at the table because we are a company that is growing and evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of our clients,” said Pete Welsh, vice president of distribution. “Our recent announcements of OnePension and Personal Retirement Accounts, through Russell Investments, are just two examples of how we are helping participants prepare for retirement through a next-gen default investment solution and guaranteed lifetime income option.”
