As everyone knows by now, there is not much to gain by keeping your money on a savings account. Investing in the stock market thus seems like a logical alternative. Online brokers and an information overload facilitate investing for everyone. But at the same time this facilitates losing money.
Since nobody likes losing money, the Vlerick Finance Alumni invited several top-notch speakers who will give practical tips and insights on beating the stock market, things every investor should know.
Whether you have been investing for years or are planning on taking the first steps, this evening will help you become a better, more informed investor.
