Jan. 29, 2014
"Vanguard Group, which manages $2.45 trillion in assets, announced Jan. 22 that it has struck a deal with ... a Washington, D.C.-based start-up named HelloWallet.... Calling itself a 'financial wellness service,' HelloWallet will become an option for the almost 4,000 defined-contribution retirement plans that Vanguard runs ... 'Workers need more help preparing for retirement than they're getting. For a lot of 401(k) participants, there's this mirage of success. Their 401(k) balance goes up and their savings deferrals go up.

So net-net they're not getting ahead' [said HelloWallet founder Matt Fellowes]."
