Holy Transparency, Batman! If you like Zillow, and you have a 401(k) plan, have I got a website for you. BrightScope has now publicly launched its rating website, in which you plug in a particular company's name and the site then provides you with a colorful, graphic presentation of that particular plan's performance and structure in comparison to certain benchmarks and comparable companies. Its simply a lot of fun, and, moreover, allows an easy, quick overview of a particular plan, without having to wade through all of the paper information for a particular plan.

In the 401(k) industry, transparency means fee disclosure. And, of course, it's what Congress and the Department of Labor have been focusing on over the last few years. But it may be the private sector that puts transparency into a very practical setting. BrightScope, Inc., an independent data analytics firm today announced the launch of their 401k ratings disclosure website featuring the BrightScope Rating, the nation's first online 401(k) rating system.

BrightScope has created a pretty cool online 401(k) rating system called the 'BrightScope Rating Engine' that has been in beta for some time. BrightScope allowed me to review and test the system during the beta period and I've been impressed by what I've seen so far.
