Any New York-area readers looking to improve their financial fitness this weekend?
Well, TIME Moneyland is a proud media sponsor of a Financial Fitness Workshop being put on by the New York University School of Continuing and Professional Studies and the Financial Planning Association of New York on Saturday, October 1 at the NYU School of Law in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village.
The workshop costs $40 to attend but includes a full day of expert-led sessions covering investing and portfolio strategy, retirement and estate planning, and budgeting techniques (as well as lunch!).
The day will kick off over breakfast with some broad market commentary from Simon Arrata of Fidelity’s institutional investment arm. Some of the more focused sessions will include tips on selecting a financial planner or advisor; a guide to the challenging topic of elder care; strategies for setting up an income stream in retirement; introductions to alternative investments and to investing outside the U.S.; and steps for understanding and managing your credit score.
The lunch speaker, author Tom Ajamie, will talk about how to recognize and avoid investment scams.
