Women and money, exploring savings & investments for beginners: Cleona Lira

April 20 @ 10:00 - 12:30

Investing is simple but not easy. So, let’s learn more about it together so it gets easier.

Investing is a rich person’s game, right?

Wrong!

Worries about money and financial independence affect most women. And with the change of the pension age many women are now also worried about how they will manage financially as they get older.

When many of us think of investments we think of stocks and shares and it can feel confusing and nothing to do with us.

But making good decisions about our money is important, whatever our income,

This workshop is suited to a beginner level, for those with a smaller investment potential and curious. You can start investing with as little as £50 per month in an investment, or £25 per month in a pension. The information will be more suited to a UK audience however general principles of investing will also be covered.

The session will be interactive and fun, with small breakout groups and invitations to post questions.

By the end of the session, we expect you will leave confident about getting started with investing and taking some action.

We aim to cover:

· Why invest?

· Common investor self-sabotaging behaviours

· What are wrappers? ISA’s v/s pensions

· What are shares and bonds?

. Sustainable Investment

· How can I get started? What are the differences between active/passive/ethical/impact investment funds?

Q&A section – ask me anything about investing. We will aim to answer as many questions as possible, but request please that you write a concise, clear question that you can post in the chat when asked. If your question is difficult to understand, it may not get picked up to be answered.
