Strong, Fidelity Lead Pyxis' Survey of 529 Web Sites


Strong Capital was the first-place winner in Pyxis Consulting's 2003 529 Web Site Survey for its Web sites for Nevada, Oregon and Wisconsin.

Pyxis expanded its ranking criteria beyond ease of enrollment, digital signatures, education and other criteria this year to identify sites that help companies reduce costs, increase contribution dollars and help investors develop realistic savings goals.

Tied for second were Fidelity, for its sites in Delaware, New Hampshire and Massachusetts and Salomon Smith Barney, for its sites in Colorado and Illinois.

Rounding out the top 10 were The Hartford, TIAA-CREF, Vanguard, Union Bank & Trust, T. Rowe Price, American Century and College Savings Bank.

Pyxis "took a more focused look at the customer-centric functionality that these sites use to increase their plan assets," said Christopher Willis, Pyxis' director of marketing.
