As Your Wealth Grows: Good Solutions to an Excellent Problem!

Join us for a Virtual Program (a Lunchtime Break)

12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (CST)

You worked hard in college, worked even harder in business school, and now, you have the job you always wanted and a beautiful family! You're busy, and thinking about personal investments isn't exactly at the top of your list. How do you make sure your money is earning money, so that you can ensure the best possible future for you and your loved ones? There is an alphabet soup of retirement options - SEP-IRA, 401K, DFB, Roth-IRA. Your boss says to invest in Tesla while your cousin is all fixed-income - what is the right allocation and path for you? The Wharton Club of Houston wants to help answer these questions, so we have organized a series starting this fall to provide a comprehensive overview of maximizing your growing earnings!

There is NO CHARGE for this event.
Here is the Zoom link: (No passcode) 

The first session will begin with an overview on retirement planning with a focus on alternative investments – which can help take a temperature on where you are - and where you should be. Join us at this convenient lunchtime Zoom, with your hosts Laura Owen and David Shine (David and Laura are partners in the Texas Avenue Group at Morgan Stanley):
