eMoney Advisor (eMoney), a leading provider of technology solutions and services that help people talk about money, today announced plans to participate in Financial Literacy Month, which is celebrated annually in April. With initiatives aimed at both clients and employees, eMoney is committed to providing resources, continuing education (CE) and content that helps people across the wealth spectrum achieve financial wellness and enables advisors to become better planners.
“Financial Literacy Month is the perfect time to focus on the basics of financial education and share resources that reflect our mission of helping people talk about money,” said Celeste Revelli, CFP®, director of financial planning at eMoney. “We’re motivated to continue serving as an educational resource for our advisors, their clients and the industry, and engage in meaningful efforts to enhance financial wellness. And we’re committed to achieving ‘financial peace of mind for all’ – starting with supporting the financial wellness of our own employees.”
As part of eMoney’s consultative partnership with financial literacy advocate Mac Gardner, Gardner kicked off Financial Literacy Month by hosting a panel of industry experts to discuss the importance of access to quality financial education as a key factor in achieving success.
eMoney will also offer a CE Marathon later this month to help advisors maximize their use of eMoney’s solutions. Attendees have the opportunity to earn up to four credits. Registration is free for all of the sessions listed below.

To ensure its own employees can take steps to achieve financial wellness, eMoney provides them with access to one-on-one sessions with CFPs from eMoney’s Financial Planning Group. All eMoney employees also have access to Incentive, a financial planning and wellness mobile app launched earlier this year. Incentive offers a range of financial wellness topics to encourage behavioral change. To increase use of the app throughout Financial Literacy Month and beyond, eMoney will provide educational sessions, spending and savings challenges and other internal promotions for engagement.
“We care about our employees’ overall well-being, and a large part of that is making sure they have a strong benefits package that includes resources to achieve financial wellness,” said Joanne Del Signore, head of people experience at eMoney. “Most people in the workforce today rely on their employer for savings vehicles such as 401(k) plans and health savings accounts. We’ve taking that a step further at eMoney by providing educational resources and technology so they can increase their own financial literacy and make smarter financial decisions.”
