Francis Financial threw a beautiful and moving event for enthralled guests on a gorgeous evening right on the cusp of summer and fall. NYC has many picturesque locations, and Francis Financial chose one of the best for their “Drinks by the Dock” soiree at Le District at the World Trade Center. Stacy Francis, CEO, shared part of her personal story as guests gathered round beneath a setting sun. As a child, she witnessed how her own grandmother stayed in an abusive marriage due to a lack of financial means, which drove Francis into the finance field. It wasn’t long after that she launched her own firm, which has become one of the leading financial boutiques in the country.
