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. All these are valid responses, yet they describe only part of what true financial wellness should be: holistic personal financial and wealth management.

Money market account vs. money market fund: Which is right for you?

  • 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.

 That’s not to say these soundalikes don’t share some traits. Both money market accounts and money market funds are safe places to park cash, and both invest in similar things — short-term debt,

Showdown looming against the U.S. dollar in Hong Kong.

Money is whatever people will use to swap, store and measure value. Since 1846, Hong Kong residents have relied on notes issued by commercial banks. And for almost four decades, they have been safe in the knowledge that 78 units of  local currency would always fetch 10 U.S. dollars. That certainty has spawned a globally competitive financial center. 

But change is on its way. The people of Hong Kong may be asked to try out a new kind of money. Whether they bite could decide the outcome of a great superpower rivalry.
