Event description

Description

So you worked all summer and have some extra cash on hand? Or maybe you’re curious about investing apps? College can be a difficult time to scrounge up the extra change just to do the things you want to do. Even if you don’t have any money saved, you can start investing now. We normally think of investing as reserved for the wealthy but it doesn’t have to be that way! No matter your career choice or major, we need investing for long term goals such as graduate school, buying a home and retirement. This workshop will take the intimidation out of investing and cover key points such as mutual funds, stocks, picking the right mix of investments and how to get started right away.

Workshop Instructor: Galia Gichon is an independent personal financial expert with more than 20 years in financial services, including nearly 10 years on Wall Street and an MBA in Finance. Her career has spanned corporate bond research analyst, personal finance expert, angel investor, entrepreneur advisor, and author. As an angel investor, she has worked with Next Wave Impact, Pipeline Angels, Astia, Refinery CT and Portfolia- actively supporting women-led and impact startups. She is also the Founder of Down to Earth Finance, independent personal finance education. She has been teaching at Barnard College’s Athena Center for Leadership and Freelancers Union for 10+ years. She has been widely quoted in The New York Times, NBC, CNN, and more. Previously, she worked at Bear Stearns and Nomura Securities. Galia is also the author of “My Money Matters” which was featured on TODAY SHOW. She can be reached at galia@downtoearthfinance.com and @SimplyMoney.

This workshop is part of our spring 2020 series Financial Fluency. These workshops and seminars will help you feel more informed and empowered when it comes to all things money. Offered in partnership with Beyond Barnard, Office of Financial Aid, and the Assistant Dean for Student Success who works with first-generation and low-income students.
