Financial Advisor Brenda Knox, CFP®, Emphasizes Community Service, Fiduciary Standards as Next Decade Begins
ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., February 26, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Brenda Knox, CFP®, founder of Financial Elements Inc., is celebrating the firm’s tenth year of guiding clients on their financial journeys. “Having been a financial advisor since the mid ‘90s, I started my firm ten years ago in order to provide clients with a financial GPS to help them navigate their financial lives,” said Knox. “Many of my clients have been with me since the early days of my career and I have advised them through all of life’s transitions. It is gratifying to see so many great outcomes based on fiduciary standards and focused financial planning.”
“In this anniversary year, we will be celebrating through a variety of community events,” said Knox. “I believe that effective financial planning extends beyond money – it encompasses health and legacy planning as well and I wanted to bring that to the forefront with my clients and community. I am excited to merge support for two important causes with my goal of serving my clients in a holistic manner by offering these events to clients and the local community.”
On Saturday, May 25, 2019, Financial Elements Inc. will be a sponsor for the Salute, Inc., 5k/10k run. Knox is inviting clients and friends to join her team for this annual race, to walk, run or just visit the Financial Elements tent and help the organization support returning veterans.
In August 2019, Financial Elements will sponsor a program hosted by the Harper College Educational Foundation. The speaker will be Amy Florian, CEO of Corgenius, whose topic is “Aging With Dignity.” Florian will address the challenges individuals and families face when having to make tough decisions about the care of aging family members who may not have planned ahead to let their children know their wishes or share their wisdom and life lessons. Florian will also speak about the range of documents individuals, parents and loved ones need to have in place so that they can live as fully as possible until their very last breath and explore ways to pass on one’s wisdom and create a legacy that involves more than money.
To sign up for either of the two events, contact Brenda Knox at Brenda.Knox@FinancialElementsInc.com or 847-496-4179.
