Registration is now open for 'Smart Investing @ Your Library'

Dec 05, 2012

Individuals interested in learning to make wise investing decisions may consider signing up for one of three investment education courses focused on one's stage in life: “Starting Out” course is for beginning investors, “Building Up” targets those in mid-life and “Making It Last” focuses on those near or in retirement.

Each course involves four online modules and is tailored to the investment challenges of each age group. Topics include: balancing risk, cutting investment costs, choosing an investment advisor, and fine-tuning an investment portfolio at each life stage.

The free six-week courses are taught by Dr. Cynthia Fletcher. Craig Goettsch, director of Investor Education and Securities Counsel, Iowa Securities Bureau, will contribute to online discussions. This program is made possible by a grant to Iowa Library Services from the FINRA Investor Education Foundation through Smart investing@your library®, a partnership with the American Library Association.

Upcoming sessions at the Washington Free Public Library are a movie showing of "Fixing the Future" at 7 p.m. Jan. 3 ; Face-to-face Kick-off and Meal from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Jan. 21; online class from Jan. 22 to Feb. 24; and Face-to-face Wrap-up and meal at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 25.
