Partnership With Financial Finesse Delivers Tailored Guidance to Employees

Ascensus—whose technology and expertise help millions of people save for retirement, education, and healthcare—has enhanced its financial wellness offering to include Financial Finesse’s AimeeTM: Artificial Intelligence Motivating Employees Everywhere.

Aimee is a first-of-its-kind virtual coach that is available to all Ascensus and institutional partner plans that offer Financial Finesse’s program to savers. It uses machine learning to provide employees with personalized, real-time guidance that can help build short-term financial resiliency while considering long-term financial goals. For advisors looking to deliver innovative retirement plan solutions that include financial wellness to employers, Aimee further deepens the value and attractiveness of the financial wellness benefit.

Aimee’s launch is the latest in a series of strategic technology investments Ascensus has made to provide more personalization and guidance throughout employees’ retirement planning journey. In 2020, the firm launched the READYSAVETM retirement mobile app and announced the expansion of its managed account investment offerings, with plans to onboard additional managed account providers in 2021. Beginning in May 2021, Ascensus’ digital financial wellness experience will benefit from these Aimee-enabled enhancements:

  • Greater personalization: Real-time guidance and custom action plans are designed to help achieve individualized milestones.
  • Increased engagement: Dynamic financial wellness scores and dashboard motivate employees to continuously track and improve upon their progress.
  • Enhanced reporting: Aimee captures insights on employees’ key financial questions and priorities to illuminate workforce wellness trends for employers.

Financial Finesse has provided their Fortune 1000-level financial wellness benefit through Ascensus since 2018. The firm built Aimee based on learnings from years of one-on-one financial coaching, input from its network of CFP® professionals, two decades of proprietary data from its award-winning Financial Wellness Think TankTM, and behavioral psychology research. Financial Finesse never solicits, promotes, or cross-sells products, making them a well-aligned partner to Ascensus and complementary source of insights and tools to advisors and their clients.

“Ascensus is paving new ground with the launch of Aimee to bring unlimited, personalized financial coaching to every single retirement plan participant, regardless of income, job type, or any other factor,” says Liz Davidson, founder and CEO of Financial Finesse. “To my knowledge, they’re the only recordkeeper that has made an investment of this scale in an independent financial wellness program to create retirement plans that truly prioritize participants.”

“The launch also underscores Ascensus’ commitment to supporting its retirement plan advisors, who can now easily combine best-in-class financial coaching with their own best-in-class offering,” concludes Davidson.
