PALO ALTO, Calif., August 3, 2009 – Financial Engines, a leading provider of retirement help, today announced that it is now managing more than $20 billion in defined contribution assets through its managed account program.  More than 370,000 retirement investors have their retirement accounts professionally managed by Financial Engines.  This milestone ranks Financial Engines among the 30 largest defined contribution asset managers.1

Large plan sponsors continue to select Financial Engines because of the company's independence and track record of helping employees at leading companies.  Financial Engines' recent introduction of broader retirement help has also contributed to the company's growth.  Today Financial Engines is helping investors with their total retirement picture by offering personalized retirement plans for saving, investment, and retirement income.   In the first half of 2009 Financial Engines was hired by more than 35 plan sponsors representing 300,000 participants to provide both online advice and professional management including Pacific Gas & Electric and Republic Services, Inc.* 

"The do-it-yourself 401(k) doesn't work for most people," says Jeff Maggioncalda, president and CEO, Financial Engines.  "After the 2008 market collapse, we are ushering in a new era for the 401(k) where participants aren't fending for themselves but have the professional retirement help they need."
