CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Bureau of Securities Regulation has started an educational program called “Women & Investing.”
Barry Glennon, director of the bureau, said the initiative is designed for women of all ages, including those facing significant life and financial transitions, such as widowhood; divorce; job loss; retirement; first-time employment; career re-entry, inheritances and other changes.
He said research shows that nearly all women will be financially responsible for themselves or their families at some point in their lives, but many are under-prepared to face these challenges. Since women generally have a longer lifespan than men, the need for financial education may be greater.
The first offering of the “Women & Investing” program will be at GoodLife Programs & Activities (Centennial Senior Center) in Concord on April 17 and 24. The free, two-part workshop with lunch runs from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on both dates.Registration is required by April 10.
Interested participants can contact GoodLife at (603) 228-6630, email firstname.lastname@example.org or view their website: www.goodlifenh.orgThe bureau also is available to work with local groups to offer free workshops.
