The Bridge to Better Retirement

Retirement accounts can grow 75% larger when professionally managed by financial advisors.

Pontera enables thousands of advisors to manage 401(k) and other retirement accounts as part of a holistic portfolio.

The Pontera Impact

Studies show that professionally managed accounts generate 3-4% higher returns per year, net of fees, than investors’ self-managed accounts. This compounding effect can yield up to 75% more wealth over 20 years.1

Pontera (formerly FeeX) provides the technology for advisors to manage these accounts on behalf of their clients without taking custody. This allows advisors and investors to work together on a personalized, holistic plan.
