Seminar encourages investment

2015-04-30 16:57

AN information seminar on saving and investing in legal financial institutions held recently at the Thabong Arts and Culture Centre failed to attract public interest.

This is despite scores of people continuously being swindled out of their hard-earned money by syndicates operating various illegal get-rich-quick schemes.

The seminar offered free information about legal institutions to invest in and save money at.

It was organised by Changing Lives with David Sekoere, coordinator, making a presentation about the different legal financial institutions which are safe for people to save and invest money in.

It also gave insight about realistic expectations when saving and investing in legal financial institutions which included banks.

The presentation also covered options for investing and saving.

The public were encouraged to save and invest money in legal institutions where returns were guaranteed, as opposed to illegal get-rich-quick schemes through which many people had fraudulently lost their hard-earned money overnight
