Financial Management Series - Market Cycles
Nov 12 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

The Bears and The Bulls

Economic theory teaches us that in order for an economy to grow over the long term, it must expand and contract in the short term – growing pains if you will. While we know all this in advance, it is somehow always easier to enjoy the market upturns and not so easy to weather the market downturns. It is important to understand that market downturns are part of overall economic growth. While we may witness peaks and valleys in the short term, markets will always rebound and rise beyond previous values in the long term. This is what history teaches us and from a financial sense, history always repeats itself.

Learning objectives

At the end of this seminar, participants will learn some key facts to keep in mind during times of market downturns:

  • Placing blame is not as important as acting quickly to help mitigate losses
  • Understand the emotions of investing and ensure you do not fall prey to them
  • Do not ignore the situation - creating a plan of action given your personal situation is important
  • Understand that such times, while negative, can represent good buying opportunities – the market is on sale
  • Employer-sponsored plans can offer a very attractive place to invest due to employer contributions and lower Investment Management Fees (IMFs)
  • Market downturns can be a great time to re-balance your portfolio

Financial Management Series - Money Sense
Nov 17 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Overview

Identity theft occurs when a criminal learns as much as they can about you and then takes on your identity – usually for financial gain. While it may seem difficult to accomplish this, it is not as hard as it seems say most law enforcement bodies. A simple start may involve going through your trash, opening personal mail or simply finding an old gym membership. Once a piece of information is found the trail continues and as more details are gathered the task becomes easier and easier.

As a result criminals can use almost any piece of information to get started on stealing an identity including:

  • Name, address and telephone number; Mother’s maiden name: City of birth
  • Any picture identification; Social Insurance Number; Etc.

To better protect yourself from identity theft:

  1. Before releasing any personal information verify who the information is for, where they work and how the data will be used
  2. Do not give out any personal information over the telephone or internet without verifying who you are giving it to
  3. Pay attention to your bills: ensure that all charges are accurate; if your statements stop arriving phone the company to see why
  4. Have a list of the contents of your purse or wallet and in the event of theft or loss ensure you notify the parties applicable

Learning objectives

At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to do the following:

  • Understand the main times when identity theft can occur
  • Learn how to spot if your identity is stolen
  • Exercise key points to prevent your identity from being stolen
  • Take the proper steps if your identity is stolen
