Flexible recordkeeping

Quality full-service offerings aren’t just for the “big guys.” They’re for everyone. 

Flexible options. Exceptional service.

Our recordkeeping services help participants stay on track and stay informed.

Built-in flexibility

Flexibility is at the core of our retirement readiness offering. We invest in the technology and people to incorporate all the features that sponsors want in a plan, adapt quickly to legal and regulatory changes, and offer the opportunity to integrate with the top companies in financial wellness, brokerage, and other services.

Common-sense innovation

We never look at our capabilities and say that they’re “good enough.” We’ll follow any path to improve investor outcomes and innovate continuously to meet your ever-evolving needs. But in doing so, we don’t chase flashy trends or the latest “thing.” Our innovation begins and ends with what we believe is in the best interest of our investors.

Paving the way for participants

Derived from more than 30 years of understanding retirement needs, combined with the behavioral analysis of more than three million participants, our programs are designed to meet the specific needs of your employees. 

Innovation: Our key to growth

The Vanguard Retirement Plan Access™ (VRPA) program has come a long way since it started over a decade ago. That’s because we’re constantly researching, learning, and innovating ways to improve the plan sponsor and participant experiences. As a result, we’ve been able to expand our small and midsize client base and increase participant savings.
