What you'll learn in this personal finance class:

Stocks enjoyed a banner year in 2013 with returns above 20%. But Wall Street jargon and fear of not understanding risk continues to prevent many smart women from investing their hard-earned income. In this 3-hour workshop, we'll break it all down.

The first hour (plus) of class will focus on the basics - stocks, bonds and mutual funds, various benchmarks like the Dow and S&P 500, risk vs reward, expense ratios and asset allocation.

The second hour we'll break into small groups and give you a chance to design a portfolio.

In the final hour each group will present their portfolio to the class explaining why they chose those assets. Time will be given at the end for Q & A.

This class is for anyone trying to figure out how to get started investing in a 401k, IRA, 529 college saving or taxable account. No prior knowledge of investing is required. Beginners are enthusiastically encouraged to attend. Men are welcome.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
