Free Webinars From BetterInvesting Beginning In April To Teach Investors How To Compare And Successfully Invest In Mutual Funds

MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As part of Financial Literacy Month, nonprofit organization BetterInvesting is offering a free series of webinars that kicks off April 18 to help investors learn how to compare and successfully invest in mutual funds.

The All About Mutual Funds series is designed to help the more than 90 million Americans who own mutual funds in their retirement and other portfolios understand how funds work and what they need to know about them. Investors of all experience levels can learn about:

  • the different types of mutual funds,
  • an impartial, third-party approach for evaluating funds,
  • identifying key principles for using funds in retirement accounts, and
  • guidelines for selecting the best mutual funds.

The series begins on April 18 with the class "Getting Started: An Introduction to Mutual Funds," followed on April 25 by "Making Money With Mutual Funds." The May 2 class will cover exchange-traded funds. The series concludes May 9 with a session discussing bond funds. During the live sessions, participants can have their questions answered by BetterInvesting's expert educators.

The featured presenters are:

  • Allen Holdsworth, president of the BetterInvesting Volunteer Advisory Board, founding director of the Illowa Buy States Chapter of BetterInvesting and a retired broker/financial planner.
  • Christi Powell, a Certified Financial Planner and assistant director and teacher of the Heart of Oklahoma Chapter of BetterInvesting.
  • Kamie Zaracki, CEO of BetterInvesting, the nation's largest nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering investors.
  • Doug Gerlach, president of ICLUBcentral, a leading provider of stock analysis software and investing tools and Editor-in-Chief of the Mutual Fund Informer mutual fund newsletter.
  • Dennis Genord, director of education and chapter development at BetterInvesting, where he heads up the development of its Mutual Fund Analysis Tools and related education programs.

Participation in the series is limited, so any investor interested in learning the essentials about mutual funds is urged to register for the free series today at Sessions will be recorded for viewing up to 60 days after the series ends.

National Financial Literacy Month was established in 2004 to help Americans focus on developing healthy financial practices. BetterInvesting believes that a critical element to financial well-being is to become a knowledgeable long-term investor.
