May 21, 2020

Walnut Creek, CA – May 21, 2020 – Newport, a leading provider of retirement plan services, announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Huntington National Bank to assume its retirement recordkeeping and administration business. Huntington will continue to serve as plan advisor for its retirement plan services clients.

Upon closing, and subject to customary conditions, the business—which currently provides recordkeeping and administration services to more than 600 plans with approximately $1.7 billion of assets under administration—will operate as part of Newport. The transaction includes Huntington’s third-party administration (TPA) business, and a team of Huntington employees, who provide these services, will join Newport.

Newport and Huntington have a long-standing strategic partnership, which this transaction will further strengthen. 

“With Huntington, we have a partner who shares our values and our commitment to providing the best possible support to clients and their retirement plan participants,” said Newport Chief Executive Officer Greg Tschider. “We look forward to introducing our company to Huntington’s clients and welcoming our newest employees to the Newport team.”
