24th Annual Knights of York Charity Golf Outing & Dinner

HJ Sims Financial Advisor, Michael Reed Torre is proud to sponsor the Knights of York 24th Annual Charity Golf Outing & Dinner benefiting children’s charities. Michael will be sponsoring a Corporate Foursome at the outing.

About the Knights of York

Founded in 1996, the Knights of York is a modern-day band of of brothers whose noble mission is to improve the lives of children in need. Their motto, “Every Knight for Their Tomorrow” is the vow each Knight takes to succeed at their goal.

A 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, the Knights of York began its charitable journey as an outgrowth of professional friendship the founders formed. They continue to work compassionately to raise funds for lesser known causes. To date, the Knights of York have donated nearly one million dollars to support medical research, educate autistic children and provide resources to worthy community programs. 

Michael Torre is the President Elect of the Knights of York and part of the Golf Outing Committee.

As we continue to experience fluctuations in our capital markets, HJ Sims is committed to Tracking the COVID-19 Impact.

HJ Sims Announces 1st Annual Private Wealth Management Summit

The HJ Sims Private Wealth Management Group is pleased to announce our first annual Private Wealth Management Summit. The internal Summit will be hosted on May 31st through June 3rd at The Boca Raton resort in Boca Raton, FL, a short drive from HJ Sims’ Boca Raton office. The theme of this year’s Summit is alternative investments, a hot topic in private wealth management.

The Summit is an opportunity for HJ Sims financial professionals to gather for education, collaboration, inspiration and a little fun under the sun. As we continue to grow, it is important for advisors to stay on top of the pulse in the industry so they can share their knowledge and provide clients with their best service.

Alternative investments are any financial asset that does not fall into one of the conventional investment categories, such as stocks, bonds and cash. Alternative investments include real estate, private equity, hedge funds, venture capital and collectibles.

Our three-day Summit will feature education sessions on products, solutions and technology advancements from leaders in the alternative investment space. 

Thank you to our 2022 Summit sponsors!
