FinTech, or Financial Technology, refers to the innovative use of technology to streamline financial activities. While you may initially visualize FinTech as fancy smart phone apps, consider, also, how ATMs replaced bank tellers or how credit cards eased the burden of carrying cash – that’s FinTech! Over the next few months, we’d like to share with you some of the FinTech products that are catching our eye, and highlight them in this space we’re calling Featured FinTech. On deck today is an app called BusyKid, a chore and allowance platform for kids and parents – check it out!
Last year, Yeske Buie was invited to join a pilot program called the Financial Planner Reentry Initiative, which is focused on diversifying the financial planning workforce by offering internships for experienced, professional, women, seeking to return to the workforce. From this program, Yeske Buie had the privilege of being connected with Karen Simons. Karen started working with us as a Re-Intern in February, and it didn’t take long to see that her high-quality work, care for our Clients, and wealth of expertise were bar none. Today, we are pleased to share that Karen has joined our team full time as a Financial Planning Apprentice. Join us in welcoming Karen to the team by reading our latest edition of Meet the Team.
