Sometimes the City of New York really comes through! They’re offering this great, free day-long event with professional, certified financial planners, which they’re vigorously assuring will be a no-strings-attached-and-no-sales-pitches. The event, hosted by the NYC Office of Financial Empowerment (OFE) and the Financial Planning Association of New York (FPANY), is on October 23. You’ll have the opportunity for a private consultation on financial issues around retirement planning, investment strategies, estate planning, tax issues, and insurance. Or you can just soak up information from the educational workshops: Managing Your Money in Hard Times, Retirement Planning, Credit Repair and Debt Management, and Investing 101. Event Details: Date: Saturday, October 23, 2010 ** Time**: 10am - 4pm Location: High School of Economics and Finance, 100 Trinity Place, New York, NY 10006 More information and pre-registration online.
