New York, NY, March 25, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- This spring, First Investors is using gardening as a metaphor to encourage clients to “grow” their portfolios.
First Investors believes the fundamentals of saving and investing are not unlike those of gardening. If an investor wants his or her portfolio to have the potential to grow and bear fruit in the future, he or she needs to plant the seeds today.
First Investors Financial Services Representatives help their clients plant the seeds for their future financial goals on a daily basis—through education funds such as Education Savings Accounts and 529 plans and retirement funds such as IRAs. Representatives also offer their clients protection for their assets in the form of life insurance. After all, careful gardeners don’t simply plant seeds and hope for the best.
While investors tend to their gardens this season, First Investors encourages them to tend to their finances as well. Just like plants, assets need maintenance and care. Anyone who wishes to plant the seeds for his or her financial future should contact a First Investors Financial Services Representative. A representative can help cultivate a portfolio that meets an individual investor’s needs.
“No matter what your goals are, the reasons for starting—or ‘planting’—early remain the same,” said Robert M. Flanagan, President of First Investors Corporation. “First, assets have the potential to benefit from the power of compounding for a longer period of time. Second, the longer your horizon, the more time you have to ride out market cycles.”
