What is FEI?
The Financial Education Institute (FEI) is an organization whose founding mission is to provide free educational resources to the public.
Why does FEI provide free education?
Founded as a result of an urgent need to enhance personal financial literacy, FEI has helped hundreds of individuals become more fiscally fit by understanding financial hurdles that they encounter in their everyday lives. FEI workshops are designed to be informative, entertaining and educational. We believe that this strengthens our communities.
Who teaches the courses?
Managing a speaking team of local industry experts, FEI gains a commitment from these professionals to contribute their time and expertise to conduct financial workshops. Most often, these are licensed, experienced financial advisors who are donating their time.
Where do the seminars take place?
In companies (lunch and learn), municipal buildings, and affiliated training facilities - at no cost to attendees. With proper planning, we can be very flexible in the presentation environments - we strive to make these workshops accessible and beneficial to the attendees.
Why would a company want to host a FEI workshop?
Host organizations may benefit from these workshops by creating goodwill and strengthening morale amongst their employees and/or members. The attendees benefit from the knowledge they gain, while the financial experts benefit by having the opportunity to give something back to the local community in which they serve. Although the workshop presenters are industry professionals, FEI workshops are presented in a generic 3rd party format, and are not sales events. The purpose of the workshop is to provide valuable financial information to the participants that attend, and no specific products or companies are endorsed.
