Money Talk$ is a 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in 2017 by Arthur Robertson, who was born and raised in Far Rockaway, NY. Arthur attended New York City public schools throughout his childhood. Specifically, Arthur attended P.S. 42, J.H.S. 180 and Beach Channel High School in Far Rockaway, NY. He attended Post University in Waterbury, CT, on a full athletic basketball scholarship. Throughout Arthur’s junior and high school years, from his experience, financial literacy concepts were not taught in the classroom.
This made Arthur realize how critical it is to educate students on financial literacy in order for them to make responsible financial decisions. As a result, Money Talk$ was created to provide the youth and adults with the financial skills and resources necessary to build generational wealth in urban communities.
Arthur brings forth almost a decade of accounting and audit experience; most recently as a Wealth Advisor with Morgan Stanley's Wealth Management Group. Prior to Morgan Stanley, he was a Vice President at BBVA and an Associate Director at UBS.
