UBOC Adds Wireless Tools To 401(k)

March 1, 2001 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - Union Bank of California's SelectBenefit 401(k) product has been enhanced with Stockpoint's wireless Internet tools, including stock quotes, intraday stock charts, major market indices and news headlines.

SelectBenefit users have access to price alerts, e-mail updates, international indices, market news and the top 25 stocks.  Additionally, the site ( www.selectbenefits.com ) has also added Stockpoint’s Advanced Fund Screener, which screens up to 100 mutual funds based on a user’s criteria such as:

  • growth pattern
  • expense
  • turnover ratio.

Members also can display a scrolling stock ticker, research investment opportunities and navigate Interactive Charts using indicators such as volume, price rate and time period.

The move is one of a series of SelectBenefits program enhancements, including self-directed brokerage ( UBOC Offers New Self-Directed Brokerage Option ) and online advice ( UBOC Selects S&P Advice ).
