Making Your Money Work for You

When it comes to saving and investing for retirement, there are many questions to consider. How much should you save and how should those savings be invested? Should your strategy change as your life circumstances change? What is your risk tolerance level when investing? This session will address those very questions as well as help you better understanding some concepts such as riding out market volatility and determining an asset allocation that meets your needs.

We'll then explore savings strategies to use in the accumulation (or working) phase. Finally, we'll discuss how you can use MERS-provided resources such as the Snapshot retirement readiness report and Full Picture report builder to help make informed financial decisions. If you have at least five more working years ahead of you, you'll find the information offered in this webinar important and useful when developing or modifying your retirement savings strategy.

We strongly encourage you to view the Part 1: Basics of Investing video before attending this webinar.
