Do you have savings currently sitting in a bank account, missing out on compounding opportunities? Are you fearful of harnessing investing opportunities because of the recent topsy-turvy stock market? In this investing literacy webinar, Scott Puritz, MBA’82, will guide attendees with sound investment advice, and will highlight the benefits and options of investing funds when it comes to planning one’s financial future.
There is no question that the stock market has taken consumers on a wild roller-coaster ride these past several years, coinciding with a slew of global events. This volatility, in part enhanced by hyperbolic news headlines, has spurred a great deal of fear and uncertainty amongst people hoping to save and invest for their financial future. Rather than invest and allow savings to compound and increase, many people have pulled their money out of the stock market and have parked it in a savings account that earns minimal interest.
In this investing literacy webinar, Scott Puritz, MBA’82 and Managing Director of wealth management firm Rebalance, will discuss what to do with your parked cash in the current financial climate. Rising interest rates are presenting numerous opportunities, but the elevated inflation rate also is presenting many risks. Speaking from decades of experience, Puritz will highlight the benefits and options of investing funds when it comes to planning one’s financial future.
The Investment Committee at Puritz’s firm Rebalance, whose investing philosophies and wisdom drive many of Rebalance’s investing practices, is composed of several globally-renowned HBS alumni and Ivy League investors, including Princeton Professor Burton Malkiel and Dr. Charles Ellis. Both of these gentlemen have experienced prolonged periods of stock market volatility throughout their 50-year careers, and yet they maintain their original outlook: invest in low-cost index funds, allow your money to compound, do not allow your emotions to drive your investing decisions, and stay the course. Puritz will address all of these points in this webinar.
The virtual presentation will last 45 minutes, and will be followed by a question-and-answer period.
