Investment matters (INV 01)

  • Day and time: Friday 12:15 - 13:30
    Fortnightly
  • Length of course: 2 terms. Autumn (5 Weeks), Spring (5 Weeks)
  • Number of places: 10
  • Start date: 22 October 2021
  • Description:

    The aim of the course is to improve our skills in managing investments, made more important by low interest rates. The range of options for safe and profitable investment is enormous, but with knowledge and commitment it is possible to ‘beat the market'. We learn as much from each other as from media and sales promotional material, useful as this is for background intelligence. We’ll look for insights into how successful investors operate, and try to identify the upcoming regions and sectors. We'll start discussing the issues of the day, financial, political and economic and their implications for the market and for investors like us. We’ll evaluate the range of products, shares, funds, investment trusts, ETFs, trackers, bonds. which private investors normally consider. We’ll then share thoughts and experiences on how our portfolios are performing and so, in the spirit of reciprocity, members should be active investors. Please contact the leader before enrolling for this course.
