SAN DIEGO, CA, June 2, 2020 –Financial Fitness Group (www.FinancialFitnessGroup.com) announces the addition of Tricia Rothschild, CFA to its board of directors.

She currently serves as an advisor and board member for a small portfolio of fintech firms and the CFA Institute.
“I first had the chance to meet Tricia Rothschild and Joe Mansueto, the founder of Morningstar when I was in graduate school. At the time the two of them were willing to listen to a Midwest college kid with a big idea”, said Joe Saari, Founder of the Financial Fitness Group. “Mr. Mansueto was even kind enough to invite me to lunch and shared his own experiences in starting Morningstar, and the meeting inspired me to pursue my own entrepreneurial dreams”.
Joe Saari continued, “Now, after more than a decade of collaboration, innovation, and hard work, thanks to partners like Tricia Rothschild and Morningstar, we are well-positioned to meet the growing need for financial wellness in turbulent times. The addition of Tricia to our Board of Directors will add immeasurable value to our ongoing growth.”

Her team of more than 1,500 product developers, product managers, designers, and business leaders drove product strategy, innovation, technical development, and the related business success for these multi-million-dollar global product lines.
“I’ve supported the Financial Fitness Group’s evolution over the past decade through the Morningstar relationship, and I now look forward to contributing to the organization as a Board Member”, said Tricia Rothschild. “Through the years I was always impressed with the content Financial Fitness Group produced, and, importantly, the delivery of that content. As investors of all levels of sophistication strive for the best possible financial outcomes for themselves and their families, Financial Fitness Group can play a unique and meaningful role in building confidence and healthy financial habits.”
