Financial Advice Millennials Need to Hear Now—MGI University Upcoming Workshops!

Financial Advice Millennials Need to Hear Now—MGI University Upcoming Workshops!

Millennials will soon hold the greatest portion of wealth in the United States, but will they know what to do with it?

In honor of Financial Literacy Month, a nationwide effort to shine light on financial and economic education, M. Griffith’s “MGI University” program is dedicating the entire month of April to educating local Millennials on important financial principles and concepts that, if set in motion now, have the power to change the course of their lives. 

“Unfortunately, most Millennials aren’t introduced to smart financial planning and investing guidance when it is most advantageous to them,” said Matthew Savery, Chief Investment Officer. “Time is a key resource and Millennials have a lot of it. The quicker they can learn and implement key financial concepts and investing strategies, the better off they will be for the rest of their lives. Many need a crash course in personal finance and that’s what we plan to provide.”

On Monday, April 30 and Thursday, May 3, Savery will be conducting interactive workshops at the firm. His presentation, titled “The Millennial Millionaire: Your Spending, Your Saving and Your Future,” will cover important topics related to earning, managing and growing money, including the power of compound interest, saving, how markets work and market volatility, budgeting, managing debt, the impact of credit and, most importantly, how having a financial plan in place early-on can make becoming a millionaire, a title that many deem unattainable or unrealistic, surprisingly within reach.

Savery plans to integrate real-life scenarios and interactive elements into his presentation. Attendees can expect to see visual representations of key concepts, real-life calculations, trivia, prizes and more. Note-taking materials and hardcopy presentation tools will be provided. Light refreshments will be served.

Both workshops will take place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the firm, located in the Utica Business Park at 555 French Rd., Building 2.

The workshops are free and open to the public. Space is limited. To register, visit

In addition to the workshops, M. Griffith Investment Services is launching a month-long educational series, “The Millennial Millionaire” to introduce Millennials to critical wealth-building concepts such as compounding interest, market behaviors and managing debt, all of which will be discussed in greater detail at the events.
