Our 3 Pillars to Financial Success
We want every individual to have a strong foundation for their financial journey, whether they are our clients or not. Because your financial success drives everything that we do. There have been countless studies to determine what were the best indicators of financial independence and the results always point to three things: Having basic financial literacy knowledge, Having a financial plan to map out goals and objectives and how you'll get there, and Having disciplined personal finance habits.
Everyone should have basic knowledge and understanding of common finance terms and concepts. Like credit vs debit, saving vs. investing, loans, debt types, how to build your credit score, etc.
This is your financial roadmap of how to get from Point A to Point of your financial journey. Without a financial plan, your road to retirement is nothing more than hoping you will get there one day.
Personal Finance requires you to use your financial literacy skills and apply that to your life. This includes things like budgeting, investing, managing debt, and sticking to your financial plan.
At Cullen Cioffi Capital Management, we are committed to not only helping our clients but educating youth about the importance of financial literacy. We also do not have account minimums, because we believe that helps breaks down the barriers and gives access to under-served communities, many of which have many minorities and people of color. On top of our mission to give financial education, one of our core missions is to help close the Black and Hispanic wealth gap. As of 2016, the average net-worth of a white family was over ten times that of a Black and over nine times that of a Hispanic family. For decades, these communities have been under-served in the financial services industry which has only increased the wealth gap, which is why we are making a strong effort to include and serve these communities.
At Cullen Cioffi Capital Management, we believe we have the ability to effect real change in the communities we serve. Building wealth is not a zero-sum game, meaning when your neighbor builds wealth, it doesn't take away from your own individual wealth, rather it strengthens your community as a whole. We hope that we can help build a fairer and more equitable society and strengthen the communities we serve and we strive to do this everyday.
