For the Love of Money

UBC Alumni

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
Cost: $15

For tickets, please contact Sandra at aluminfo@alumni.ubc.ca or 604.822.3313.

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?

For more information about the Young Alumni Network, a program offered by the UBC Alumni Association, please contact Dianna DeBlaere at YAmentor@alumni.ubc.ca or 604.822.8917 or visit the Web site at http://www.alumni.ubc.ca/programs/youngalumni/.
