Offering insight

Finance gurus hosted a special seminar for female legal eagles at the request of Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association President Carrie Anne Cavallo on Jan. 29, where they addressed fiscal concerns specific to women.

“The bar association asked if we could do a presentation specifically geared to financial planning for women and things that really affect them specifical­ly,” said financial adviser Jacquelyn Calandriello.

Certain challenges in planning for retirement unique to women — including their roll as caregivers, longer lifespans, and reduced pay in comparison to men — led many females within the bar to seek financial advice from Cavallo, who in response requested the lecture from Calandriello and fellow finance expert Danielle Guarino.

“She wanted to do it for the Brooklyn women’s bar,” said Calandriello. “They never really had someone in to talk overall about the different ways to look at their own retirement plans.”

Reasonable discourse

Jim from Cobble Hill says:
Jacquelyn Calandriello and Danielle Guarino work Ameriprise Financial Services. It is being investigated by the SEC, been fined on the state and federal level multiple times, has violated the Oxley Act, and has taken retributive action against whistle blowers; Loscalso v. Ameriprise. That company has done more to hurt more women than the Weinstein Company.
