This course addresses the issue of mobility and distance from the U.S. and how it can hamper foreign affairs employees and family members in making sound financial decisions or in setting up mechanisms for their financial future. Experts will discuss topics of concern, especially to the novice investor.
"This course helped me get a general handle on personal finance. It gave me confidence to know I can manage my finances okay and that I don't need to worry about missing out on some great deal/product/strategy whatever as long as I am prudent and invest appropriately conservative."
"This course went beyond BASIC investing. Very useful considering I do have experience in these matters."
"I learned that one must save at every step (preferably earlier than later) of their career to be able to have a retirement. Saving 10% minimum over a career and having it compounded in say a Roth Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) would be an excellent start."
