Financial Literacy: becoming an informed investor

To coincide with Money Smart Week (March 30-April 6), (which is a coordinated effort  among organizations to promote personal financial literacy), the Livingston Public Library is holding a special event in collaboration with the Investor Advocacy Project (IAP).   The IAP is the result of the collaborative work of the law students and law professors of Seton Hall Law School, and was made possible through an origination grant by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

It conducts roadshow presentations around the state of New Jersey as a pro-bono service to the community, designed to provide real world education regarding financial literacy.

The Library presentation will address commonly used terms in the financial industry, different types of securities and the “red flags” associated with each that may signal fraud or abuse by brokers handling your money, common FINRA causes of action, and questions to ask your investment professional before turning over your money. The goal of the presentation is to provide attendees with the foundations necessary for working towards becoming informed investors.

According to Sandy M. De Souza , the student advocate who will lead the session, these presentations by the IAP are  “ purely educational and have a real impact on attendees’ financial literacy.”

The floor will be opened up for questions as the presentation moves along, thereby creating more of a round-table discussion.

The program is free and open to all but registration is required either via the library calendar at www.livingstonlibrary.org or by calling 973 992 4600
