According to a recent report by Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual), fifty one percent of African Americans believe that investing and financial planning should be a high priority and three-quarters make financial decisions based on what is best for their family. Both categories received more favorable responses compared to the general population.

“This community has a rich history of helping each other in times of need, even if it means making personal sacrifices to do so,” explains Reginald Canal, Financial Advisor, Fortis Lux. “Our group was established to help strengthen the financial foundation of our African American community through education, outreach programs and referrals. These initiatives will help create and grow wealth today and in the future.”
