Develop your Personal Financial Skills
Everything you need to know
Do you occasionally struggle to pay your bills on time? Feeling overwhelmed with debt? Or perhaps you have some money saved up and would like to know what your investment options are? Financial literacy is as important to the economist as it is to any student or young professional, regardless of academic background. Learn how to retire with literally hundreds of thousands of dollars more in your portfolio, not by gambling on risky “investments”, but by strategically allocating money to different types of accounts, reducing or eliminating high fees, and qualifying for lower interest rates by boosting your credit score early on.
- This workshop series will cover personal finance topics as diverse as setting up a budget, dealing with debt, types of bank and investment accounts and their respective features, taxation basics, how pensions work in Canada, types of investment vehicles, types of insurance, and how to objectively evaluate the purchase of a home/investment property, among other related topics.
