GREELEY — The volatile fluctuations of the stock market in the past two years have created considerable confusion and fear for many investors. People are fleeing the market and investing record amounts into U.S. Treasury notes, bills and bonds. But is this trend the smartest play for the investor today? Should today’s investor be satisfied with yields that are less than the rate of inflation?
Aims Corporate Education Division presents a six-part workshop to confront these questions head-on. Taught by former New York Stock Exchange Member and Arbitrator, Karen Korins, Confident Investing focuses on providing investors with the knowledge and confidence to make the best decisions for their investment goals.
“As a former floor trader, I can tell you that the market moves between fear and greed, and the direction of that movement is based on the public’s confidence or lack of confidence in the market,” Korins said. “These seminars will teach investors how to use the tools available to them to determine what to invest in and when to do it.”
The series will be held at the Aims Corporate Education Division each Tuesday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m, beginning on Sept. 21 through Oct. 26. Participants can attend any or all seminars for $29 each.
