First, you save the money in a relevant tax-advantaged account - like a 401(k), 403(b), or IRA. But what's next? How do you pick the right investments to build enough wealth to retire? In this webinar, we will explore investment strategies concerning retirement and various types of mutual funds including total market funds, index funds, and target date funds, to help you make informed decisions as you continue to plan for your retirement.


About Alan Chen ('17):
Hello! My name is Alan and I'm an alumnus of Macaulay Honors College at Baruch College. You would think after attending business school, I would know how to manage my personal finances. Unfortunately financial literacy is not a skill taught in schools. I come from a low-income family and have seen firsthand the negative effects of poor money management and not saving early enough for retirement. My goal is to help people retire happily. By day, I write code as a software engineer; by night, I study financial literacy. I am very interested in technology startups. Right now, I'm working on a FinTech startup that I believe will change the world.
