“iGrad currently provides services to financial advisors at over 300 financial services firms,” said iGrad CEO Rob LaBreche in a statement to WSR. LaBreche stated that the combination of FFG, iGrad and Aztec’s capabilities “will now offer the largest and most comprehensive library of content and services specifically geared towards adults.”

Saari said, “Financial advisors play a critical role helping individual investors of all ages navigate an increasingly sophisticated financial landscape, and their expertise is invaluable in helping clients make informed financial decisions. As part of the Aztec and iGrad family, we are excited to build on our mission to drive real change through education, and to partner with a like-minded organization that shares our passion and values.”

“Too many workers are financially strained and in a constant state of economic uncertainty. It is crucial that adults at every stage of life have the resources to pursue – and achieve – financial security,” said LaBreche. “Together, we will provide a well-rounded and best-in-class financial wellness experience to a broad base of end users by utilizing FFG’s arsenal of complementary content and offerings to remain our clients’ most reliable and trusted resource.”
