Empowering the Investor through Financial Planning

September 28, 2022
5:30 PM – 7:00 PM


New York Tech alumni and friends are invited to a financial awareness and education session hosted by alumnus Frank Palumbo (B.S. '91) and American Capital Partners on Wednesday, September 28 at 5:30 p.m.

The conversations will address how to plan for retirement and how to properly be invested and diversified. We'll also cover why it’s important, during times of financial hardships, to work with an advisor to protect your downside side risk and demonstrate how we can construct a portfolio that can address your risks, objectives, and goals.

Three questions that clients usually have for us are: Am I all right? Do I have enough? How am I doing?

Participants can expect to come away from this session with an understanding as to why it’s important to have a financial plan no matter one’s age and receive informative and practical answers to the questions above.


Please direct questions to Sabrina Polidoro, director of alumni relations, at spolidor@nyit.edu.
