For the Love of Money
By Vanessa Clarke
A lot of us love money, but not many of us relish the annual
chore of working out our taxes -- especially when our efforts
don't result in a nice fat return. The Young Alumni Network
is offering recent graduates a workshop that will teach them
how to manage their money efficiently and invest it wisely.
Just in time for the March 1 RRSP deadline, Jonathan Pagtakhan,
BA'98, a financial advisor with CIBC, will teach workshop
participants new investment strategies and ways to keep the
taxman at bay. He'll talk about goal setting, borrowing, cash
flow management, RRSPs, investment planning and asset allocation.
A representative from London Life will also be on hand to
talk about different types of insurance.
Thursday, February 12th
HSBC Hall UBC Robson Square
6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
For tickets, please contact Sandra at firstname.lastname@example.org
Jonathan Pagtakhan is a volunteer on the Young Alumni Network
committee, helping to organize events that will be useful
to recent graduates in their professional development (there
are also plenty of opportunities for socializing).
One of Jonathan's favourite memories of UBC is of the couches
at Sedgewick Library -- perhaps a contender for the best place
to kiss on campus?
