Women are often removed from, left out, or disengaged from the financial planning process. A major life event – divorce, death, illness or career change – can suddenly thrust a woman to the front lines of finance.
A panel discussion entitled “Women & Investing – Focused, Fearless and Financially Fit ” will address that topic. The free presentation will include seasoned, regional financial experts including Betsy Vallone of Essential Asset Management based in Norwell, MA; Leah Shanahan of Rodman CPAs located in Waltham, MA; and Attorney Gina Leahy, Law Offices situated in Pembroke, MA. The panel will be moderated by Steve Dubin of PR Works based in Plymouth, MA.
Women have a number of unique financial challenges including longevity, loss of income/gap in employment income and leaving work before anticipated retirement to care for a loved one.
This workshop will explore better methods to plan for the unexpected and better control finances including savings, retirement, emergency fund and trust. Additionally, topics will include an outline of safer investment options, simple measurement tools to keep investments on track, alternatives to traditional investing and strategies for paying oneself first.
Women in transition and those anticipating a shift are encouraged to attend and learn strategies to protect their financial future.
The discussion, including time for questions and answers, will be held Thursday, May 5, 2016 from 8 – 9:30 a.m. at the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, 134 Court Street, Route 3A, Plymouth, MA 02360. Light refreshments will be served.
To RSVP, call the Plymouth Chamber, (508) 830-1620 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
