WEX Health and dailyVest Form Collaboration for HSA Consumers
WEX Health has selected dailyVest to further enhance the investment capabilities and user experience for WEX Health consumers utilizing health savings account (HSA) investment tools.
The new partnership leverages dailyVest’s core investment personalization and performance calculation engine known as PIP for producing interactive, real-time investment and personal rate of return content and visualization for WEX Health’s platform. The addition of the new portal technology can provide employers and benefits administrators access to improved data analytics and customization tools that can create a more seamless, integrated experience for consumers.
According to the Devenir Research 2017 Midyear HSA Market Report, the number of HSA accounts surpassed 21 million, holding about $42.7 billion in assets, from June 2016 to June 2017. The report also states that HSA investments have seen substantial growth—with assets reaching an estimated $6.8 billion in June 2017, up 44% year over year. With HSA investing on the rise, WEX Health hopes to enhance consumer engagement within this growing space by partnering with dailyVest.
“The dailyVest platform aligns nicely with the user experience and the team brings a wealth of expertise to the table. They have the ability to present important financial information to consumers in a way that is impactful, yet easy to understand,” says Matt Dallahan, senior vice president of Strategy and Development at WEX Health. “By providing user-friendly visualizations, we can now offer an experience that appeals to both novice and experienced investors.”
