“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”

– Benjamin Franklin

Abacus hosts a number of events each year, ranging in topics to help you better understand the financial options available to you. Our advisors offer knowledge and guidance that you can apply directly to your unique situation, bringing you closer to financial freedom.

Abacus Conversation Circles offer a safe place to talk about money and how it affects our lives.

These 90-minute “Circles” bring people together (virtually or in-person) to share personal stories around common themes. Participants listen, share, and reflect on past experiences, current situations, and future intentions.

Our Circles include topics like:

  • My Money Story: Uncovering Inherited Money Messages
  • How Much is Enough? Purpose Beyond Accumulation
  • Ready for Retirement: Envisioning Your Future

Offered online and in-person, our educational seminars deliver financial planning tips to build a healthy and successful money life.

Our talks include topics like:

  • Financial Foundations (spending, saving, investing)
  • Retirement planning
  • Values-Aligned Investing
