Americans are financially more sick than ever before.The majority of people have less than $1000 saved for retirement and 50% have saved exactly nothing.
CHARLESTON, S.C. (PRWEB) January 30, 2018
Today, in honor of January being financial wellness awareness month, Questis, a financial wellness technology (finwelltech) company, released a piece predicting what will this year will bring for the financial wellness industry. The 2018 financial wellness trends piece was developed to highlight the company's expectations and hopes for the year ahead, along with challenging people to perhaps think about financial wellness, as they have known it, differently.
"Americans are financially more sick than ever before.The majority of people have less than $1000 saved for retirement and 50% have saved exactly nothing." says Steve Wilbourne, Founder & CEO Questis, "The time for change is now -- and that change starts with technology. We believe that people should have access to personalized, holistic, simple financial experiences, and that people will access this benefit in the workplace, namely via their retirement plan advisors."
This piece breaks down definitions typically associated with the financial wellness sector and outlines five predictions, including retirement plan consultants selling financial wellness programs, which include 401k plans, rather than 401k plans with a financial wellness add on.
As a company dedicated to making behavior change possible in financial wellness and in powering this progress through software, Questis is passionate about these predictions becoming realities. The purpose of this piece is to pave the way for progress this year and encourage others to have these important conversations.
