Biagnostics®

Biagnostics is an educational program that offers simple tools and techniques to help resolve the conflict between participants' emotional wants and financial needs.

Encourage smart saving and investing habits

With Biagnostics, you can teach behavioral finance basics to plan participants via an engaging learning experience. Plan participants discover how to recognize and address two types of investing biases:

  • Behavioral biases (based on irrational thoughts of feelings)
  • Generational biases (based on life stage experiences and challenges)

By implementing Biagnostics, you can help participants take action to potentially improve their 401(k) investing behavior and retirement readiness.

The Biagnostics experience

Emotionally, plan participants want less volatility, less stress, and more peace of mind. But, financially speaking, they may be making poor decisions that hurt their ability to achieve long-term retirement goals. With Biagnostics, you can help participants create an investing experience that's better suited to both their wants and needs.
