"What we've been doing in the retirement industry is not working. Decades of the 'set it and forget it' approach have led to a retirement crisis. People are so disillusioned with their savings options that they're not saving at all - and if they do manage to save, they are leaving money behind," said Ryan Radloff, CEO of Choice. "Choice is reimagining the retirement process, starting with rewarding people for engaging with their savings."

According to research from The Federal Reserve, if you are under 30 you likely have $0 saved for retirement. A recent study conducted by Capitalize found that those who did manage to save have left behind $1.35 trillion in assets in 24.3 million 'zombie' 401(k) accounts. Choice is on a mission to help people reclaim these funds and invest their money how they see fit.

Today's news builds on a legacy of firsts for the Choice team - in 2020, Choice became the first company to offer access to digital and traditional assets side-by-side in a single retirement account; and in 2017, Kingdom Trust - the trust that powers Choice, became the first qualified custodian globally to offer custody for bitcoin.
