Financial Fitness in Focus

Annual Regions initiative reaches more people with financial education.

Hey, do you know what day it is?

It’s the first Friday in February. If you didn’t get financially fit in January, you were the exception. Our branches across the Regions footprint took Financial Fitness Fridays to new heights this year. Here are just a few examples from hundreds of events:

  • At Lady’s Island, S.C., one Financial Fitness Friday focused on the Neighborhood Outreach Connection by starting a conversation with 24 students and teachers on banking, money and the value of savings. Another drew customers to set up appointments for a financial review after engaging visitors about digital banking.
  • At the Creasy Lane branch in Lafayette, Ind., Financial Fitness Friday was used to explain “10 ways to simplify your life using banking technology,” demonstrating to customers how accessible – and safe – digital banking can be.
  • In Hot Springs, Ark., associates at the Albert Pike branch used Financial Fitness Friday to meet with customers about reaching their financial goals for 2019.
  • At the Channing Way branch in Jackson, Tenn., Next Step conversations included a presentation at the Jackson-Madison County Schools System and a visit at the JMCSS Community Expo.
  • At the Crossville, Tenn., main branch a customer glanced over at a sign asking, “How fit are you financially?” That started a conversation about long-term retirement planning.
  • In Anderson, S.C., the team at the Clemson Blvd. branch drew a crowd with healthy snacks and workout attire, generating requests for advice, guidance and education for a better fiscal 2019.

If you missed out, there is good news. While Financial Fitness Fridays lasted through January, the best time to review your finances and plan for the future is (as always) now.

Regions’ commitment to financial advice, guidance and education is year-round. Branch personnel are available to help. And free financial education is online at regions.com/NextStep.
