Would you like to learn about investing and a practical approach to building wealth, but don’t know where to start? This comprehensive course is designed to demystify investment jargon and empower you to manage your money safely and effectively. We’ll start by examining money market accounts, certificates of deposit, savings accounts, stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. With weekly hands-on exercises, you will master practical investment skills such as spotting high fees on account statements and in mutual fund prospectuses, and building a balanced portfolio. Find out what really matters when you pick mutual funds (hint: it’s not the number of stars). Learn how to protect yourself from salespeople and speculators, and how to use the financial services industry to your best advantage.

A $20 materials fee for a course packet is payable to the instructor at the first class.
