Devenir Releases Viewpoints White Paper On Investing in an HSA vs 401(k)

MINNEAPOLIS — Devenir, a thought leader in the HSA investment marketplace, has released a white paper comparing the growth of the HSA marketplace to the long-established 401(k)s.

2018 is here, and both employers and accountholders are funding HSAs for the new year. In order to help accountholders make the most of their healthcare dollars, we took an in-depth look at investing in an HSA vs 401(k). After careful analysis from many angles including tax, behavioral, and industry-level, we compiled the 3 key features that all HSA investors should know, and what they mean for a retirement portfolio.

Key Highlights from the analysis:

  • HSAs may have a leg up on tax efficiency
  • HSAs are practical for a wide range of consumers
  • Account providers must help participants make the most of their HSA

“Consumers continue to look for effective ways to navigate their healthcare savings and understand the advantages HSAs have to offer. Using 401(k)s as a baseline is a great way to tell the value story of HSAs and where they fit in the retirement picture,” said Zach Haas, author of the white paper and investment analyst at Devenir.
