Improve your personal finance knowledge for free

2022 was a significant year for investors and non-investors alike. After more than 2 years of pandemic shutdowns, the reopening economies fuelled a recovery surge.

Whether you are a new or seasoned investor, personal finance is even more important in 2023. Learn how to manage your finances (and mortgages) in a rising interest rate environment or how to make your money stay ahead of inflation.

Start your financial goals on the right track. Whether you are planning to save for a house, building an emergency fund in case of a recession or planning for retirement, there is a wealth of knowledge available through free webinars, seminars and events. All you have to do is take the first step to attend them.
