Now that you have finished schooling, started making real money and/or starting a new family there are so many things to consider in your financial life. Come learn how to budget your resources and determine financial priorities. We will discuss what a healthy savings rate is and then the different investment vehicles you can utilize to make these savings grow for you (Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds, ETFs, 401k, IRA and Real Estate). Then we will get into the basics of determining an asset allocation and the proper amount of diversification. Lastly, we will cover how the current economic environment will impact these different asset classes as well as expected returns for diversified portfolios.
