Health savings accounts on the rise Health savings accounts are on the rise. According to a recent study, the number of accounts totals 25 million, representing a 13% increase from a year earlier.

Financial advice helps boost retirement confidence Most Baby Boomers who work with a financial advisor are confident about retirement. In its annual Boomer retirement survey, the Insured Retirement Institute found that a significant number of Boomers lack a financial plan. Most (70%) respondents working with an advisor have a savings goal. Among individuals without an advisor, only 25% have a goal.
Many investors want custom communications Financial advisors are using more technology to communicate with clients and are more focused on customizing those messages, according to a new study. More than half of investors surveyed noted they receive some advisor communications tailored to their needs and goals. Respondents also reported a growing use of social media. Many Millennials (more than onethird) said they use a smartphone to read communications, compared with 21% of Gen X and 7% of Baby Boomers.
