Team MONECO - Holiday Reflections

As is the case with our clients, the time leading up to the holidays each year is always a hectic one at MONECO. Required Minimum Distributions need to be fulfilled, along with retirement plan contributions, 529 gifts and closing the books on yet another year. For these reasons, it is often difficult to round everyone up to celebrate and reflect on how fortunate we are to work with such great clients and the team members we spend a tremendous amount of time with each and every day. Despite this, once again, some of the team was able to do just that, where schedules permitted, to celebrate one another and all the client work we are committed to doing, day in and day out and the friendships our team continues to share with one another. We hosted our annual team holiday reception with some good food, cheer and great conversations! Pictured below is some of the team post reception. We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year!

If you have questions, we are here for you.
