A Better Financial Group, Inc., was started in 2004 by Daniel Moskowitz. The company was named after his grandfather’s (George Shatz) company called A Better Gasket Mfg. Corporation, which was based in New York City and started in 1941. As a child, Daniel would visit New York often and one of his grandfather’s favorite places to take him was the New York Stock Exchange. Daniel was always intrigued by the stock market and fell in love with the idea of being able to partially own some of the greatest companies in the world. His grandfather would also take him to the gasket factory and teach him the ins and outs of running a business.
George learned about business the hard way. He dropped out of school in the 7th grade during the Great Depression so he could help support his family by shining shoes on the streets of New York. From these humble beginnings, he was able to work his way up to eventually starting a successful business of his own. Even though George passed away when Daniel was only 13, the impact on his life was significant. It is in his memory that A Better Financial Group, Inc., was named, and thus it will always be a goal for Daniel to live up to this name and his mission to be A Better Financial Group.
