The Power of Independence
This month, our country turned 242 years old. Over the years, the United States of America has seen its struggles as well as successes, but many of its core values have been founded on the simple idea of independence. Over the course of July, we will be celebrating this fact in our blogs, social media, and other communications. In this day in age, financial planning services can be accessed through a number of distribution channels. National banks and brokerage houses dot every main street from sea to shining sea, and their messages infiltrate just about every communications medium available. Our founder, Joe Rocco, decided a long time ago to choose a different path. At Rocco & Associates, we work independently, which allows our team to truly put every client’s best interests first and provide a partner to help navigate your financial future. So while we all will celebrate our country’s independence all month long, let us also not forget the power of working with an independent financial planner like Rocco & Associates!

Another Successful Movie Night!
The firm is going into its third year as a sponsor of the Sand Jam Movie Nights at Fairflied’s Jennings Beach. Partnering with the Park and Recreation Department, these family events draw residents from all of Fairfield County. In addition to giving back to the community that we have called home for over 40 years, it also gives us another forum to introduce our services. The event kicks off with a DJ at 6:30, followed by the movie once the sun sets. These Friday night events will run into August and the entire schedule can be found here. So pack a beach chair, some snacks, and bring the whole family to come and enjoy an evening together. Non-residents can also take advantage of these fun activities for just $20.00 per car.
