A New Vision For Financial Wellness

CEO & Founder of BrightPlan and a former executive at Cisco, is a longtime Silicon Valley innovator and business leader.

More U.S. employers are offering financial wellness programs, yet the increasing popularity of this employee benefit has raised an important question: What exactly is “financial wellness”? If you asked 10 people this question, you’d likely get 10 different answers ranging from employee financial education, retirement planning, 401(k) advice, budgeting, debt management, estate planning and emergency savings.

  • A money market account is an interest-bearing deposit account offered by banks and credit unions.
  • A money market fund is a type of income-oriented mutual fund that invests in short-term debt securities.
  • Both are low-risk and highly liquid, but money market accounts and money market funds are distinct financial vehicles that serve different needs.
  • Visit Insider’s Investing reference library for more stories.

Money market accounts and money market funds may have similar names, but they have some key differences. A money market fund is a low-risk and highly liquid investment asset — specifically, a mutual fund — while a money market account is a type of deposit account offered by a bank or credit union.
