Personalized Advice

While workplace seminars are an excellent way to provide financial education, providing access to one-on-one financial planning consultation allows privacy for personal financial topics. There are countless types of “advisers”. Unfortunately, a very large number of “advisers” are sales representatives working on sales goals or commissions which can create conflicts of interest. We believe it is crucial for a group plan to have provide access to financial advice with no hidden strings attached. That is why we work closely with The Steele Group, a team of dedicated Certified Financial Planners (CFP®), as a resource for individual financial planning needs.
