While all of these topics will be discussed during in-person events and online seminars, businesses and groups can request a financial expert from Savant to speak at up-coming association, corporate or business meetings and events.

The first event to kick off the SAGE Advice Series is Am I Okay? This event will address the question everyone is asking about their financial future: “Am I Okay?” Savant’s advisors will provide valuable information and tools to individuals who are seeking to establish a clear picture of their financial future on what they need to do to ensure they will be okay. The seminar will touch on topics such as reassessing goals, making any necessary adjustments to portfolios and establishing a plan of action for your finances. Savant has developed a unique tool for this event in which investors can plug in their financial information to see how their nest egg is working with their current and future goals.

“One of the best ways to help decrease investors’ anxiety is to gather as much knowledge and information about all the issues surrounding your finances, and to let an expert help you decide how to overcome those issues so you can continue on your path to reach your goals,” said Brent Brodeski, Managing Partner at Savant Capital Management. “Our experts will share their research and professional knowledge on wealth management so individuals can feel more comfortable with preparing for their future.”
