For Participants

KTRADE Is Committed to Working with Plan Participants

We know how important it is to be financially prepared for retirement. That’s why we offer investment options and pricing designed to maximize your financial security.

Through our open-architecture platform, we are able to offer thousands of mutual fund options. In fact, if you and your Investment Advisor are looking for a particular fund—ask us. More than likely, we can make it available to you.

You’ll find our fees are some of the lowest in the industry. And we credit 100 percent of the revenue sharing that we receive from all investment solutions against our professional fees. That means our reduced fees translate into higher account balances—an advantage that can make a significant difference to your balance over the lifetime of the account.

Participant education is an especially important part of an effective retirement plan. Your plan is successful only if you understand how it works and, as a result, are prepared to make informed decisions. KTRADE’s goal is to ensure your employees receive the education and guidance they need so they can take an active role in preparing for a sound and secure retirement.

In today’s retirement plan environment, the recordkeeping function is especially critical. In fact, recordkeeping is the backbone of the participant-directed system that prevails today. KTRADE tracks your account balance by source – for example, your deferrals, employer contributions, rollovers – and by the investments you have selected.
