Plan Summary

The Saturna Trust Company 401(k) plan is a full-service arrangement. Our plans save our clients the costs associated with outside service providers because Saturna’s staff handles everything from recordkeeping to investment management to marketing and education. Full-service arrangements eliminate the need for employers to deal with and monitor multiple service providers. This eases the employer’s burden to consider potential conflicts of interest that may arise when using multiple providers.

We offer 401(k) plans a selection of Saturna Capital no-load mutual funds, as well as an extensive menu of unaffiliated mutual funds, with a variety of investment objectives, through our open architecture platform. Employers select their investment menu, and by investing in more than one fund, employees can tailor their 401(k) accounts to fit their own risk and return objectives.
