Money Smart Week Features Model Stock Investment Club MeetingsAs part of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago's Money Smart Week 2015, BetterInvesting is inviting the public to several online and in-person model investment club meetings and to a general investing session. Money Smart Week is a public awareness campaign created by the Chicago Fed in 2002 to help consumers better manage their personal finances.
People interested in learning more about investment clubs and investing in stocks can attend a model club meeting to observe a real investment club in action as members analyze the club portfolio performance, potential buy and sell decisions and stocks that are on the club's watch list. Guests attending the general session will learn the basics of stock investing and how to start an investment club of their own.
These events are free.
