At CollegeInvest we provide expert information, simple financial planning tools and tax advantaged 529 college saving plans to help Coloradans. The CollegeInvest Sales Team is tasked with that first part, and their goal is to be the educational provider for all things 529 to the financial professionals in Colorado.
What that really means is they spend their time talking to all the financial advisors, CPAs and insurance agents among others, to make sure those professionals know how Colorado 529 savings plans work, and when it makes sense to use a 529 to help save for college. They do it in group meetings and on a one-on-one basis, through attending industry events, and by offering a robust continuing education program.
