Why a financial blueprint is the most important step.

UB graduates Paul & Adam Hammer give an in-depth discussion of why it’s important to develop a financial blueprint, the unique financial challenges you may face, how saving will play a key role in your life, planning vs. reacting, and how investing goes hand in hand with saving.

The webinar will also provide a recap of the 2017 financial markets & key trends to look for in 2018. This is part one of a three part series on personal finances.
