Investment Management Company Helps Retirement Plans Get into Shape

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A Rockford investment management company is teaching us how to get our wallets in shape.

Savant hosted their first ever Financial Fitness Workshop today at NIU's Rockford location. The investment management group gave tips on what to do when it comes to planning for our retirement. The group says we need to teach children how to save for college. Bankers say educating them can be as simple as starting to use a piggy bank.

Mul Downey, Chairman, Savant, says, "The biggest part about accumulation is to feed the piggy bank. Youngsters, children, can see that take place. They understand accumulation that will turn into the thing that will help them move through college because they understand you don't fill the piggy bank without sacrifice."

If you missed out on the workshop, Savant hopes to hold more workshops annually.
