    Women + Wealth: Planning Your Financial Future

    Presented by Susan Hines

    Statistics show that women in the United States currently control the majority of total personal wealth in our country and are earning more than half of the degrees in our colleges and universities. However, in spite of their rising financial power, women are much more fearful of being able to support themselves and their family members; whether it is providing for their children’s educational costs, saving and investing for their own retirement, or assisting with the potential living expenses of an elderly relative. Being stressed about money impacts both physical and mental well-being and can have a direct impact on how we function in our daily lives. Whatever life stage you are in, it is imperative to have the financial knowledge you need to make the most educated choices for yourself and your loved one.

    Join us for a lively discussion on the importance of sound financial planning. Feeling confident about how to best plan for and protect your own financial future will allow you to best navigate through the exciting uncertainties of your life.

    Some of the topics that will be covered include:

    • How to create a solid foundation — Banking services and building your credit
    • Making your money work for you — Understanding the basics of stocks, bonds and cash
    • Looking ahead toward a secure retirement — the power of long-term investing
    • Protecting your life and your legacy — Fundamentals of estate planning
