Money Matters: How to Celebrate Financial Literacy Month

April 17, 2023


Living in these uncertain times may fill you with frequent questions about the state of your finances — seemingly by the minute depending on the news of the day. Thankfully this week, calm has settled over financial markets after the banking industry's recent volatility. Is this a positive sign for the coming months, or could there be something deeper happening?

I’m passing along these articles this week to help answer some of the pressing questions you may be pondering, such as:

  • What’s all this I hear about a recession?
  • Should I just be putting my cash under a mattress right now?
  • Can I buy a house? Or a Tesla?

Asking questions about financial matters is crucial for making informed decisions and achieving your financial goals. Financial literacy is a skill that everyone should strive to develop. And what better time to focus on financial literacy than April, which is Financial Literacy Month in America?

Here’s a suggestion: “Celebrate” Financial Literacy Month by sitting down with one of Malvern Bank’s associates to review your finances. This financial checkup will help ensure that your current financial strategies are helping to keep you on target for achieving your long-term financial goals. Let’s get the conversation started by contacting Sally Lawson, our Senior Investment Officer, at 610.695.3651 or email her at

Please enjoy these articles, and let’s build your financial acumen. What are you curious about? We’d love to discuss any questions you have about opportunities in these everchanging times.
