(Toronto, ON, April 8, 2019) - Foresters Financial™ an international financial services provider, believes that having a comprehensive retirement plan is an essential component to financial security and well-being. However, a recent consumer study shows that only 64 percent of American workers feel confident about their ability to retire comfortably and nearly 38 percent reported that they never tried to calculate how much money they need to have saved so that they can live comfortably in retirement1. That is why National Retirement Planning Week is such an important event, as it helps to promote the value of retirement readiness for the present and for the future.
“This campaign is very important to our company because, we deliver advice and holistic financial planning solutions that provide our customers with the ability to take charge of their financial futures” says William J. Stevens CLU® ChFC®, MSFS, Senior Vice President, Retail Sales at Foresters Financial Services Inc. and “Our goal is to help educate as many Americans as possible about the importance of working with a financial advisor professional who can help them turn their dreams in to realities”.
