Take Control of Your Investments Even in This Economy

Posted on June 14, 2011 By

Investing in today’s market is like being on a roller coaster. With the right ingredients in your portfolio, however, you can control the ride even in today’s economy. Join Kenneth B. Shapiro, CPA/PFS, CFP®*, Toms River, president of Shapiro Financial Security Group, Inc., Hazlet, for a free Webinar conference, “The Investment Roller Coaster Ride,” hosted by New Jersey Society of CPAs (NJCPA) on Wednesday, June 22 from noon to 1:00 p.m.

Shapiro says, “Building an investment portfolio is very similar to preparing a nice meal. Not enough seasoning and the food will taste quite bland; too much seasoning and you can ruin the meal. Individuals have a tendency to take on too much risk in their investment portfolio and then panic when markets turn against them.”

Shapiro will teach Webinar participants how to build and maintain investment portfolios, sprinkled with the appropriate amount of risk that will perform well during both good and bad markets.
