Financial Education Workshop: Stock Market Basics
Mar 24 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Stock Market Basics

Many financial planners say it’s wise to invest your savings in the stock market rather than leave your money in a low-interest account. Before you jump into the stock market, it’s important to know that investing in stocks comes with risks. This workshop provides the basics needed to get a clear understanding of the stock market, the risks involved, ways to reduce risks, how to buy stocks, and how to maintain your account.
