Investing for recent retirees meeting on the Gold Coast
The world of superannuation and investments can be very daunting for recent retirees.
This can be particularly so at this time with markets this year showing significant declines and volatility.
You've just spent 40 years in your chosen trade or profession. You've become and expert with years of experience and younger people seek your opinion and advice. It's time to retire and to enjoy the good life.
Time to reap the fruits of your labour. While this is usually a very enjoyable time for most retirees, it does introduce a new area of concern. Many retirees, while experts in their career, have quite limited experience in financial and investment matters.
Many retirees are faced with making important decisions about their retirement finances with little or no background knowledge to draw upon.
The Gold Coast Branch of Australians in Retirement (AIR) will be holding a free meeting for retirees entitled "The Basics of Investing."
Gold Coast president of AIR, Mr Rob Grover, said: "We are very fortunate to have Mr Russell Lenehan as our guest speaker at this meeting. Russell has spoken previously at several of our educational forums and he has a style that attendees find very engaging and understandable."
AIR has opened this free forum to all Gold Coast retirees who wish to enhance their knowledge of investment markets. "The timing of this meeting would seem to be very important as we see unprecedented market volatility at this time." Mr Grover said.
The meeting will be held at 9:30 am at the Broadbeach Seniors' Centre, 23 T E Peters Drive, (cnr Havana Keys), Broadbeach on Wednesday 3rd February.
All Gold Coast retirees are welcome to attend however due to space limitations seating can only be guaranteed to members of the public who register their attendance by contacting Rob Grover at email@example.com
