PRESENTATION TOPIC--  Web Meeting: How to Thrive Despite Bad Journalism and Bad Impulses

PRESENTATION OVERVIEW: 
Investors are forever asking themselves a question that’s not only wrong but also destructive: “Are my investments beating the market?” Inexperienced financial journalists, writing on deadline and without training, just encourage bad behavior. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We can do better. Drawing on 20 years of experience in helping investors think about their strategies, David Snowball will try to offer answers to three questions: What standards should we apply in choosing an investment fund? What best predicts success in such an investment? And what role, if any, should ETFs play in an investor’s portfolio?

ATTEND THIS MEETING TO LEARN: 
1. How to determine the right asset allocation for you.
2. The best predictors of success in an investment fund.
3  What role, if any, ETFs should have in an investor's portfolio.
