Who We Are

Troutwood is a financial service and technology company operating out of the Carnegie Mellon University Swartz Center.  The company designs and develops investment education and financial planning tools intended to help individuals learn to invest with understanding. Retirement in America has changed from employer directed to employee directed.

“My students at the University of Pittsburgh are graduating into a world where nearly unanimously, they are responsible for self-managing their retirement plan – 401(k) or Roth IRA are two popular options,” says Gene Natali, CEO of Troutwood. 

Troutwood is seeking to prepare and help students plan for this change.  The company founders have a combined nearly 40 years of working with large institutional investors in America including some of the largest retirement plans in the country.  They have a deep understanding of what this change means, and the importance of students learning early on that they will be responsible for their financial future.
