BEGINNING INVESTING AND

RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS

Where Do You Begin?

Have you ever wanted to start

investing some money but have little

knowledge, time, or money?  Have

you started your own long term

retirement fund?  Nothing is promised

when it comes to retirement pen-

sion funds.  This class provides an

understanding of what to expect when

starting investing.  It also provides

a structure to build your knowledge

gradually as you become familiar with

finance-speak. Students will be intro-

duced to Roth versus Traditional IRAs

and how to open an investment/retire-

ment account.  You will be introduced

to securities and other products

included in the “Market.” Learn how

to read online tools & manipulate

them to gain a historical perspective

on stock performance of companies.

Review industry practices & market

volatility to refrain from making bad

investment decisions. You know more

than you think you do.  If you want to

learn what to expect when investing

and how to evaluate information to

select your own investments for the

long term, this course is for you.  Rob

Saunders will help you connect the

dots on investments and finances. 

Join this lively discussion & bring your

questions to class! Handouts will be

provided.
