NEW YORK & PALO ALTO, CA, May 8, 2012 -- Financial Engines and J.P. Morgan Retirement Plan Services today announced that Financial Engines® Income+ has been integrated into J.P. Morgan Retirement Plan Services' 401k offering.
Income+ is available as part of J.P. Morgan's in-plan professionally managed account program, J.P. Morgan Personal Asset Manager, which works within a 401k's existing investment line-up to enable more personalized portfolios designed to provide steady retirement income.
"J.P. Morgan is committed to furthering investment line-up innovation," said Donn Hess, Managing Director and Head of Product Development at J.P. Morgan Retirement Plan Services.
