The past couple of years Harbour has been working on expanding the associations we donate to. Beginning in 2021, we created a partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and their UW-Whitewater Foundation. This partnership was designed to provide the college a local broker/dealer they could direct their finance majors to for them to complete their internship requirements. Along with providing them an outlet for their internships, Travis has assisted the college with seminars for their students on the campus.
On Monday, Travis provided one of his seminars on campus to their Financial Planning Class. Not only is Travis able to give the students a first-hand look at our industry, but we learn a little about the next generation of financial majors. During his presentation, the student’s frequently asked questions were regarding the potential for compensation, remote work environments, flexibility of the workday, and continuing education regarding getting licensed. It’s interesting to see where the next generations mind is at!
We received a letter from the assistant professor of finance thanking Travis the day after his presentation along with thank you notes from the students of the class. We are honored to be able to provide insight into our amazing industry and were not looking for any sort of gratitude, but it was so touching to receive, we had to share.
