The concept of investing is pretty simple. You put money toward an asset that you believe will appreciate over time, with the goal of building wealth via compound interest and bucking the impact of inflation over time. The opportunities when it comes to investing tend to be more complex, though. Beyond investing in the stock market or real estate, emerging investment opportunities in cryptocurrencies or digital assets (e.g. NFTs) are rising in popularity. This session will provide a summary of the various types of investment opportunities and how to think about them as you plan your own mix based on your personal financial goals.
