Behavioral Finance + Financial Wellness = The Participant Effect
Positioning your plan for success means much more than just providing options to benefit your employees and your business. The fact is, even when optimal plans are offered, many employees fail to join voluntary defined contribution plans. Those who do tend to save too little, and their investment elections are often questionable.
For your employees, this can mean they won’t be able to retire on their own terms. For employers, this can mean exposure to high health insurance rates, unnecessary fiduciary risk and potential litigation.
That’s why FiduciaryFirst leverages the power of The Participant EffectSM —our dynamic program that can help improve participant outcomes and offer appropriate strategies for employers and their employees
The data doesn’t lie. At The Participant EffectSM we’ve studied over 40 years of data examining the decisions employees make when presented with benefits at work and financial decisions at home.
