The Penn State Graduate and Professional Student Association will be sponsoring a FREE "Investment 101" Workshop on January 27 from 7:00 - 8:30 PM in the Bank of America Career Services Building. Three investment companies: Vanguard, Merill Lynch, and Morgan Stanley will be there to serve as a panel to answer questions pre-generated by attendees regarding their particular questions about short-term, long-term, and retirement investing. Two Penn State Professors from the Finance Department in the Smeal College of Business, Assoc. Professors of Finance David Haushalter and Lou Ghaddis, will provide an introductory lecture on the importance of investing, especially at this stage in our lives, and moderate the question and answer session with the panel. The investment companies will each be allotted several minutes toward the end to discuss specific products they find useful for graduate students that their respective companies offer. They will also have booths set up with brochures regarding products, as well as contact information, and will speak with students on a one-to-one basis to offer advice. This is a great opportunity to learn about investing, and you will have access to experts who will be there to inform you free of charge.
Please complete your registration by January 24th if you wish to join this workshop.
