Closing Remarks Colin Gregan Managing Director IIFT
Why Choose this Course?
IIFT’s INVESTING course is a must for people who feel that they don’t really know how to go about getting a good return on their money. Who should I talk to? Who can I trust with my money? How can I take an active role in investing? Should I buy shares? Should I be in other things like property or bonds or funds? How do I minimize risk? How do I build an investment plan suitable for my needs? With interest rates so low, we need to search for a Return from other Asset classes rather than Bank deposits.
