College Planning Web Site Officially Launches


WILLIAMSBURG, VA -- 1/6/2005 -- Invest for College, LLC today announced the launch of its web site, providing families with tools, reports and research needed in order to properly build and manage a college savings plan.

Through 2 different membership platforms, Standard and Premier, families and investors will be able to take advantage of a variety of college savings tools, including Invest for College’s newly launched account wizard, a 5-star 529 plan college savings system, special planning reports, and a no load/load-waived investment platform.

“Our 529 research area gives families and financial advisors the opportunity to evaluate college saving options using a proprietary, quantitative-based 5-star rating system. We re-rate plans annually with the highest rated 529 plans receiving an IFC ’Best Bets’ status,” says Burton Baker, President of Invest for College, LLC.

Reports and articles, written by a team of analysts, are continuously updated giving the web site and its content a magazine-style flavor. “There are quite a bit of college savings myths and poor planning habits which families need to be aware of before developing a college investment plan. We can offer a big help here,” says Mr. Baker.

While Standard membership remains free, at $49.99 per year the Premier membership offers members the opportunity to invest in 529 plans and other college saving accounts, bypassing traditional mutual fund sales loads and brokerage commissions on their investments.

Although the web site officially launches today, site traffic has been steadily increasing over the last month. “We are already ranked as high as #2 on Yahoo’s search engine results - depending on your key word search. This tells me that we’re providing relevant, insightful content and analysis families and advisors can use when building a college savings plan. We certainly can’t complain about the site’s popularity thus far,” says Mr. Baker.
