EDUCATORS FINANCIAL GROUP KICKS OFF THE ULTIMATE ROAD TRIP WITH THE SMART MONEY TOUR
The Smart Money Tour will commemorate the organization’s 40th anniversary as it visits schools in 40 cities in 40 days.
Educators Financial Group (Educators) is packing their bags and hitting the road on its special tour bus on October 2, 2014 to bring its newest initiative, the Smart Money Tour, to the education community across Ontario.
Educators originally launched in 1975 as an answer to the education community’s individual needs for financial solutions. Once considered too high risk by lending institutions, this organization was launched by the Ontario Secondary School Teacher’s Federation (OSSTF/FEESO) to help teachers obtain mortgages. Fast forward to 40 years later, Educators has evolved alongside this unique community and is now considered the education community’s financial specialist, administering more than $850 million CDN in assets for over 16,000 clients across all Ontario Teachers’ Federation affiliates.
Educators Financial Group provides financial planning, investing and lending solutions for members of the education community and their families across Ontario. These solutions span from educator-specific financial advice to financial products, such as investments, lines of credit and mortgages.
“We are honoured that the education community has entrusted Educators Financial Group with their futures for 40 years,” said Chuck Hamilton, President and CEO, Educators Financial Group. “The Smart Money Tour is our opportunity to visit our clients on their doorsteps and show our commitment to addressing their distinct needs with our educator-specific financial expertise.”
The Smart Money Tour Bus is scheduled to stop at locations all over Ontario including Toronto, Thunder Bay, Dryden, Sarnia and Pembroke – to name a few. They will be visiting about two schools each day to address the education community’s educator-specific questions and to enhance financial literacy.
