Protecting and Growing Your Nest Egg

There is no question that another recession is coming. Losing 40% or  50% of your savings is not a big problem if you are a young adult, but if you are approaching or already in retirement, then it can be a very big problem. This class will teach you about alternative investments and strategies that will help you minimize the losses that most investors suffer during bear markets.

In this class, we will discuss three major areas of investing knowledge: market analysis (so you know what's happening), investment management (so you can do something about it), and how professionals think about investing (so you can avoid the common mistakes most people make). Classes will consist of 90 minutes of lecture followed by a 30-minute question and answer session.
