TIAA-CREF to Host Workshop on Investing and Today's Economy
November 18, 2008, Volume 55, No. 13

If you’re concerned about the volatile market and wondering how it will affect your own retirement savings, you’re not alone. But Penn’s Division of Human Resources can help.

On Tuesday, December 2, Human Resources is sponsoring a discussion with P. Brett Hammond, managing director and chief investment strategist at TIAA-CREF. Mr. Hammond will address common questions and concerns about today’s unstable economy in his presentation, What Is an Investor to Do? The discussion will focus on how our economy is affected by market conditions, global economies and federal policies. You’ll also learn about the national housing market and what to expect from the economy in the coming months and years.

Whether you’re on the verge of retirement or still in the early stages of your career, this presentation will help you better understand the current market downfall and how best to prepare for your future. You’re invited to attend either of two sessions being held in the Hall of Flags, Houston Hall on December 2: Session I: 10-11:30 a.m. or Session II: 1-2:30 p.m.

Please note that these sessions are open to all Penn faculty and staff, whether you’re investing with TIAA-CREF or The Vanguard Group.
