Safeguarding Your Savings – Summer 2009

Our Family Financial Education Extension Specialists have teamed with both the Office of the Missouri Secretary of State and the Investor Protection Trust to present investor education workshops entitled, “Safeguard Your Savings”. The programs are designed to be introductory and attempt to take some of the mystique out of investing, while helping people avoid some of the common pitfalls. Of course, no presentation on investing would be complete without some time being spent on recognizing scams and rip-offs that exist in this market – especially during times when people are desperate to recoup the losses of the past year.

If there is a Family Financial Extension Specialists in your region of the state, there is probably a program for you to attend. The schedule is posted below or you can always find updates on this and other extension programs on the Human Environmental Sciences Extension website. Take some time this summer to invest in yourself. Learning always has a positive return for your family’s success, in addition to your finances.
