One of the best ways to prepare for life’s many surprises is to save and invest over time, and there are many ways to do so. The wealth you build today can help provide financial security for many reasons, from having the funds for a down payment for the home of your dreams, to easing the anxiety of bringing a newborn into your home, to having funds for retirement or long-term care. It can also help prepare you for emergencies, like the temporary loss of employment. The more you save, and the better you invest, the more options you’ll have for you and your family when life happens. Being financially secure doesn’t just happen — it requires awareness, foresight and planning. This roundtable will offer tips and advice around things you can do right now to help put you on the path and secure your family’s financial future. Join us for an interactive dialogue about real-life experiences from women who are financial professionals and have learned lessons on how to prepare for all the possibilities, both expected and unexpected. Please stay immediately following from 4:00 p.m.–4:30 p.m. to continue the conversation over wine and cheese.
