NEW YORK, Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Keynote Benefits, a New York City based consulting firm specializing in group benefits and financial wellness, announced today that it will now offer financial planning services and tools to group benefits clients, free of charge.
Keynote's latest offering comes as a direct response to pent-up demand and frustration from both employers and employees across the country. While new regulations are adding layers of complexity and capital requirements, a shortage of critical talent is adding extra pressure on employers to offer competitive benefit plans in the workforce. Financial pressure continues to rank as the top source of stress for Americans, with nearly 40% of employees spending 3 or more hours at work each week dealing with personal finance issues.
"Over the years of managing assets for high net worth business clients, we observed a major disconnect between the financial sophistication of our clients and their employees, with the latter lacking the proper tools and framework to accurately understand and manage their financial situation. At Keynote, we believe that everyone deserves to work with a professional financial planner, regardless of his or her financial situation. If you buy a home you fully expect your broker to provide information and guidance, and there is no reason why your group benefits broker should be any different," said Nick Cerminaro, Co-Founder and CEO of Keynote Benefits.
Keynote's free financial wellness services include personal budgeting, retirement planning, education planning, risk management, and estate planning. Along with these advisory services, employees will be provided with an intuitive web-based platform where they can organize their finances, set goals for the future, and evaluate their progress along the way. By combining a personalized group benefits package with free and direct access to expert financial planners, employers will benefit from a more focused, engaged, and productive workforce.
