The Company Ranks No. 2522 on the 2021 Inc. 5000 List of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America

August 17, 2021

The company makes the top 5000 list with annualized revenue growth of 35 percent or more since 2017.

OAK BROOK, IL – Aug. 17, 2021 – Millennium Trust Company, LLC (“Millennium Trust” or “the Company”), a leading provider of retirement and institutional services, was recognized today as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in America.

The prestigious Inc. 5000 list, announced today, puts Millennium Trust at No. 2522 on the list of fastest growing private companies. The Company has seen record levels of growth in its institutional custody services and self-directed IRA businesses.

Millennium Trust already was recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in Chicago. It’s been named to Crain’s Chicago Business Fast 50 list four years in row and is the only retirement and institutional custody services company on Crain’s 2021 list.

Millennium Trust Company was founded in 2000 as a specialized IRA custodian. Just 20 years later, it is a trusted industry leader that offers a suite of institutional and financial wellness solutions and has more than $33 billion under custody.

“It is an honor to be recognized by Inc. magazine for our tremendous growth,” said Gary Anetsberger, CEO. “But it is a bigger honor to know that we got here by serving our clients with the utmost integrity, attention to detail, and commitment to their holistic financial well-being.”

The annual Inc. 5000 list is the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment — independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”

Millennium Trust has produced an average of 35% or more annualized revenue growth since 2016 as it works to become the go-to resource for institutional solutions – from retirement plan solutions to investment and fund custody – and to offer individual clients choice in how they want to invest, with options ranging from stocks, mutual funds, and ETFs to alternative assets, such as private equity, hedge funds and real estate, as well as the tools and resources to help them on their retirement journey.

Among its ever-growing list of offerings, the Company recently launched its Emergency Savings Fund Solution for employers that want to help their employees save for life’s unexpected events. Millennium Trust continues to enhance services for individual clients through the MTC Investment Platform and other service portals that allow clients to see their entire investment portfolio in one place.
