its inception in November of 2007, West Advisory Group has been
dedicated to improving the financial well being of individuals
in the Western New York area.
The numbers tell the story behind
West Advisory Group’s vision. According to a study done by
Jump $tart Coalition, 9 in 10 students who graduate from high school
lacks basic skills in the management of personal financial affairs.
It’s scary to think that 90% of our future workforce is deficient
in the area of finance. Many are unable to balance a checkbook and
most simply have no insight into the basic survival principles involved
with earning, spending, saving, and investing. Many young people
fail in the management of their first consumer credit experience,
establish bad financial management habits, and stumble through their
lives learning by trial and error.
West Advisory Group is committed
to providing services that will allow individuals from all economic
backgrounds to receive a stellar education in the area of finance.
This knowledge will empower young people so that they can put an
end to a vicious cycle of ongoing credit card debt, living above
one’s means, and disproportionate income to debt ratios.
