What You’ll Do
Investment is an important wealth-building tool that not only paves the way to a comfortable retirement, but also helps establish financial freedom. However, as it stands, women earn less and save less over their lifetimes than men do. Financial-education expert Melissa Donohue aims to change this through casual investing lessons that empower women to take the reins of their financial future, starting in the New Year.
Learn to Invest
Melissa Donohue shares fundamental investing advice for women, delving into each participant’s personal financial goals and experiences, as well as investing basics. Elena Volkova discusses the legal side of things so that participants can learn to protect their wealth for their families.
Enjoy Crepes and Wine
Throughout the discussion you’ll sample Crepes du Nord’s farm-to-table crepes, filled with locally grown ingredients, plus dessert and coffee.
Build Your Portfolio
With the advice from the dinner, and a packet of information each woman gets to take home, participants will have the tools necessary to begin investing wisely.
