About Us


In the fall of 1995 Kevin Wingert was approached by Dave Noble about starting a new life insurance company based out of West Des Moines, IA called American Equity.  In 2001 he was named President of American Equity Life Insurance and served on the board of directors for both the life insurance company and the holding company that went public in 2004.  At American Equity, the vision was simple.  People. Service. Future.  It was that vision that moved him to seek opportunity, not security, and became an American Entrepreneur in 2009 when he started American Retirement Systems.


Our goal is simply to build strong relationships and businesses with a small group of professionals who believe in honesty, integrity, and service for their clients.  You and your clients aren’t numbers to us.  Our work and relationships are our bond.


Our vision is different.  We offer honest solutions to retirement professionals and their clients.  Straightforward product training and explanations.  Marketing programs that work financially for the professional agent’s business plan. Unparalleled service…
