Foundations of Finance with Johnny Rutledge

Join a relaxed environment to learn the basics of personal finance and investing. The goals of the workshop are 1) to teach how investing works (including concepts such as compound growth, asset classes, and risk); and 2) to discuss how you can be “successful” at it, including making a plan for goals such as homeownership, savings, debt, retirement planning, philanthropy, or any other personal objectives.

These meetings are intended for those who are just getting started but are open to all interested. This is not a sales-oriented seminar pushing investment products, recommending individual stocks, or making economic forecasts.

The class is lead by Johnny Rutledge (Community Center Board member). Johnny has lived in West Marin for more than 10 years. He worked in finance for more than 25 years before retiring last year at age 47. Since then, he has “failed” at retirement and he recently started a new business, Phoundational LLC.

Location: TBD

Wednesdays at 7:00 pm for one hour on January 29, February 5, February 12, and February 26.
