Wyomissing, PA (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
Utilities Employees Credit Union (UECU), a virtual credit union serving the utility and energy industry nationwide, has partnered with SWBC Investment Services, LLC to offer a full range of investment and insurance services through Utilities Employees Investment Services (UEIS).
Later this summer, Utilities Employees Investment Services will begin offering educational workshops on investments for Credit Union members on the morning of August 9, 2012 at its facility in UECU’s Wyomissing, PA headquarters. This first UEIS workshop will address the subject of Investing For Tax-Free Income, with a focus on the features and benefits of municipal bonds and municipal bond funds. Presenters will include UEIS representatives James Miller and Gina Katrinak, as well as a representative from one of their participating investment providers.
“Whether people are saving for retirement or another goal, a lot of financial growth can be eroded by taxes, so this is an important strategy for people trying to grow their finances without affecting their taxable income,” says James Miller, Financial Advisor for Utilities Employees Investment Services. “Municipal bonds are also typically an asset class that can offer them a bit more stability in their investments mix.”
For individuals who cannot attend the event in person, UEIS plans to make its educational workshops available in video format following the events, on the UECU YouTube webpage at http://www.youtube.com/user/UECUorg.
Utilities Employees Investment Services provides a full array of investment products as well as consultation services and tools to help members examine or develop their investment portfolio. UEIS’ representatives also assist individuals and families with financial plans for goals including retirement, saving for a college fund, buying a home, or leaving a legacy.
“We enjoy working with utility workers and their family members – and start by finding out what’s important to them and what their goals are,” says Miller. “Then we can discuss the possible financial solutions for their short-term, mid-term, and long-term investment needs.”
