Specialized retirement solutions for your business.
Business Retirement Plans
A Team Approach
Whether you are considering a startup retirement plan for less than $1 million to plans over $25 million, we take a consultative approach where our experienced team can work with you to develop a strategy that works for you and your employees. As a regional trust company with more than $7 billion in assets under management, we are able to work with large companies, small businesses, non-profit organizations, professional practices and more, to help them navigate the best options for them for 401(k), 403 (b), 457, defined benefit, profit sharing, and SEP/Keogh plans. Stock Yards Bank & Trust is not a record keeper; rather, we partner with several premier record keepers to utilize their reporting and website capabilities, providing our customers with local, qualified investment services with large-scale technological resources.
Our Commitment to our Customers:
- Work with businesses to define objectives and enhance potential investment returns
- Reduce the administrative burdens related to plan management
- Manage plan expenses through the utilization of an independent platform
- Enable customer’s employees to coordinate and achieve their personal goals
- Protect plan fiduciaries through a formal written agreement (including preferred partners)
