Community Involvement

Javier has found that well compensated people often arrive at retirement with insufficient assets or income to sustain themselves because they are poorly informed about their financial options earlier in their lives. To help solve this problem, Javier co-founded ARK Financial Solutions, a 501c3 corporation, dedicated to increasing financial knowledge and improving retirement prospects throughout his community. The organization’s emphasis on financial literacy leads people to reduce their debt, improve their credit, strengthen their retirements, and obtain greater peace of mind.
