MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., — Investors of all experience levels will learn how to identify the best investments, manage their portfolio and plan for retirement the 67th annual BetterInvesting National Convention May 17-20 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld. From Thursday through Sunday, the convention will offer dozens of sessions led by BetterInvesting’s dedicated volunteers providing unbiased education.
The convention is the premiere education event of BetterInvesting, a nonprofit investment education association. The association’s BetterInvesting Volunteer Advisory Board, comprising volunteers who are passionate about the association’s mission, conducts the annual event.
“Our educators are excited to come to the home of the ‘Happiest Place on Earth,'” event chairman Sue Spurlin says. “They’ll be leading top-notch sessions on topics such as selecting stocks, mutual funds and other investments; building a paycheck for retirement; estate planning; and investment opportunities in the tech, banking and retail sectors.” Beginners also can attend a series of classes to learn how to evaluate stocks for their long-term investment potential. All attendees are sure to come away with a long list of stocks to study for potential investment.
A keynote address by Kelley Wright, managing editor of the Investment Quality Trends newsletter, chief investment officer for IQ Trends and author of Dividends Don’t Lie, will be one of the highlights of a free day of investment education on Saturday, May 19.
