BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – In recognition of April as National Financial Literacy Month, Regions Bank on Friday announced new initiatives to help more people take charge of their finances.
“What we find is many people think they’ll have plenty of time later in life to save for the future, or they feel like they have too much debt or too little income to save very much,” said Joye Hehn, Financial Education Content Manager for Regions Bank. “But the truth is, no matter where you are in life, the time to prepare for your financial future is now. And no matter how much, or how little, you have to begin, we have insights, tools and resources to help you develop a strategy to reach your financial goals.”
Initiatives underway at Regions this month include public events where anyone interested in learning how to take charge of their finances can attend and gain valuable insights. The high-energy, high-impact events will take place in:
- Nashville – Saturday, April 22, 2017, at 8:00 a.m. at Beech Creek Missionary Baptist Church, 3101 Curtis St., Nashville, Tenn., 37218
