Our Story

American Trust is a promise kept for more than 50 years.

American Trust is a promise kept for more than 50 years to help clients succeed on their retirement savings paths. Today, we are more than 120 people focused on one thing – improving retirement outcomes for you and your employees.

At American Trust, we believe that the best way to help you succeed is to listen, understand your needs and then present a solution designed to fit you rather than expect you to fit a product off the shelf. Our focus on expert plan design, fiduciary oversight, discretionary trust services, cost efficiency, service, and technology creates a retirement plan experience you can count on to help you create good retirement outcomes.

How We Got Here

American Trust started in the 1950s as part of American Trust Bank of Dubuque, Iowa and has long been a leading full-service provider of retirement services to small-to-mid-sized plan sponsors.

In early 2019, American Trust was acquired by First Mercantile Trust, a subsidiary of EdgeCo Holdings. Edgeco, which also includes Mid Atlantic Capital Group, touches more than 15% of all retirement plans in the U.S.
