Introducing the 2019 Financial Health Leaders

Friday, May 10, 2019

Financial Health Network is pleased to announce the 2019 Financial Health Leaders Program participants. The selected organizations are members of the Financial Health Network that are at the forefront of financial health measurement and are contributing to a more resilient financial ecosystem.

To be considered, companies must meet annual requirements, which adjust year-to-year based on the latest advances in financial health innovation. Leaders are challenged to measure the financial health of their individual customers, small business customers, B2B clients’ customers, and/or their own employees.

In 2018, 34 organizations measured the financial health of over 10 million consumers. These Leaders measured financial health through a variety of approaches including using survey data, transactional data and a combination of the two. Leveraging this data, Leaders were able to adjust or develop products and programs for their customers, such as financial health scores, financial coaching, behaviorally-informed financial health content, digital credit tools, and more.

As of May 2019, the 2019 Financial Health Leaders are:
