Fragasso Financial Advisors to provide critical resources for professionals who need a strategic plan
Pittsburgh, PA – April 16, 2009 – In the wake of countless lay-offs and cost-cutting measures, one of the top U.S. independent financial advisors is opening its doors to help local professionals who have lost their jobs – and they are doing it at no charge.
“We’re doing this because we know how devastating losing a job can be said Bob Fragasso, President of Fragasso Financial Advisors, “The stress that it places on families and the distraction that it creates for the laid-off professional is significant. If we can help them create a sound financial strategy to manage through the process, then perhaps they can have more peace of mind as they concentrate on their search for gainful employment”.
As part of this mission, Fragasso Financial Advisors has mobilized a team of experienced professionals that will assess each individual’s unemployment situation, suggest strategies for conserving their financial resources, and perhaps most importantly, help them avoid costly mistakes that could harm their personal finances and their ability to find a good job. This includes developing a strategy to handle severance packages and stock options, planning for insurance needs, protecting their retirement funds, debt management and consolidation and leveraging the equity in their home.
“As a company, we’re committed to our clients, our employees and the strength of this region” added Mr. Fragasso, “And utilizing our resources to help those in need, well that is something that we want to do”.
Assistance will be available to all professionals needing help. They can begin the process by calling the firm and setting an appointment. The contact number is 412.227.3200.
