- Betterment’s technology led 401(k) provider teamed up with HR software company Zenefits.
- Zenefits SMB customers will gain access to Betterment’s retirement planning and financial wellness offerings.
Last month Betterment’s retirement planning service Betterment 401(k) launched its partnership with HR and payroll firm Zenefits. Under the collaboration, Zenefit’s SMB customers have been given access to Betterment’s retirement plan in addition to a number of employee financial wellness products.
The offering is available through Zenefit’s marketplace. Betterment will provide Zenefits customers with personalized financial advice, managed accounts and goals-based investing portfolios including socially responsible options.
