Money Gifts for Dads & Grads

With Fathers Day this weekend, and a whole new crop
of high school and college graduates, why not give a
gift that will have an impact on the personal
finances of the Dads and grads in your life? Instead
of the traditional necktie for Dad or a watch,
jewelry or other accessory for the grad, why not
contribute to an IRA or mutual fund account for
them? Or how about a financial planning consultation
that could address an issue like retirement planning
for Dad, or managing educational loan debt for the
college grad? To learn more about mutual funds and
