Description

Hello all,

The CFP has invited Professor Russ Wermers to be our speaker for the Consumer Finance Speaker Series on October 6th, 11:00am - 12:00pm in VMH 1520, College Park, talking about investment management throughout your life.

Choosing investments can be a daunting challenge for individuals who have no experience in markets. This talk will cover some basics about how to think about investing when you are just beginning, as well as how to judge whether you should purchase a particular mutual fund.

Professor Wermers main research interests include studies of the efficiency of securities markets, as well as the role of institutional investors in setting stock prices. Most notably, his past research has developed new approaches to measuring and attributing the performance of mutual funds, pension funds, and hedge funds, as well as devising winning strategies for investing in these funds. Professor Wermers also studies the investment behavior of these asset managers, as well as the impact of their trades on stock markets. Click HERE to know more about Professor Wermers.

Again, the number of students who can be registered for lunch will be limited, registration is on a first come, first serve basis. No shows may not be able to attend future CFP events
