|New York, April26, 2017 – Advanced Capital Group (ACG) was honored at the third annual Financial Capability Innovation Awards presented by the nation’s leading technology innovator, EverFi, Inc. Presented at Nasdaq Marketsite in New York City, the award recognizes ACG’s significant efforts to improve the financial capability of Americans through unique digital learning initiatives.
“We’re thrilled to be honored for the work we’re doing to bring financial wellness to our clients and their employees,” said Charles Langowski, Advanced Capital Group CEO. “From ACG’s founding, participant education has been at the core of what we do and holistic financial wellness is the next evolution of that effort. A sizable portion of Americans have very immediate, pressing, personal financial challenges that keep them from thinking about long-term financial goals like saving for retirement. We’re committed to helping them get to a better place with their finances; there are incredible benefits for the individual, their family and community and, there’s a great return on investment for the employer as well.”
Honorees were selected based on a set of criteria that included the scale and reach of their financial education initiatives, the duration of their commitment, and unique employee volunteering activities that supplement their programs.
“Each year, we travel to the birthplace of the American financial system to honor institutions that are truly dedicated to going above and beyond in service to their communities,” said Ray Martinez, EverFi President of Financial Education. “The Financial Capability Innovation Awards have given us the opportunity to share and celebrate the tremendous investment these institutions are making and continue to make in the communities where they live, work, and serve. For EverFi, our time here reminds us just how critical the role innovation continues to play in empowering Americans to pursue economic opportunity and achieve financial security for themselves, their families, and their community.”
