To help investors get more out of their health savings accounts, HSA Clearing, the leading Health Savings Account/HSA setup provider for banks and credit unions nationwide, and optionsXpress, ranked the top online securities brokerage three years in a row by Barron's, have announced a partnership to offer the optionsXpress brokerage platform to HSA's customers. The platform will be available to those banks and credit unions that wish to offer stock and options brokerage capabilities within HSAs.
ÂOur turn-key HSA setup program for banks and credit unions just got even better with this partnership with optionsXpress,Â said Tim Morales, of HSA Clearing. ÂFor financial institutions that wish to provide investment options to their HSA customers, they now have access to low-cost online brokerage services from optionsXpress, ranked number one by both BarronÂs and SmartMoney.Â
ÂWe believe that many customers want to deal with their local institutions for their Health Savings Accounts/HSAs,Â Morales added. ÂThat is why HSA Clearing's turn-key program is growing nationwide as more financial institutions learn the benefits of offering HSAs to both their business and individual customers. The addition of optionsXpress rounds out our HSA setup program with a simple and effective way for banks and credit unions to increase deposits and ensure customer loyalty.Â
"In addition to our award-winning brokerage services, optionsXpress is the fastest growing online broker because we constantly seek out innovative business partnerships with complementary organizations,Â said David Kalt, CEO of optionsXpress Holdings, Inc.
