On Thursday, May 17, the New York HOPE Financial Dignity Center hosted its first ever workshop on investing. The “Investing Basics Workshop” was conducted by Edward Williams, a Financial Consultant with DEW Financial Management Group based in Fairfax, VA.
Eighteen people took part in the inagural session to learn more about savings options, investing, understanding risk and rewards, stocks, bonds, mutual funds and retirement planning. Also in attendance was Alfonso Pearson, Community Development Manager with E*TRADE Financial.
HOPE would like to extend a special thank you to E*TRADE for their continued support, assistance in developing the curriculum, and for seeing the need for this type of workshop in the communities we serve. In addition, HOPE is also grateful to LPL Financial and Mr. Williams for being part of the team that assisted in developing the “Investing Basics Workshop” curriculum.
