Retirement Planning in Challenging Times – Mid-Year Outlook

Join us Wednesday, September 21, 2022 from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM for a look at the financial markets and current state of the economy and the impact on retirement planning and saving for you.

If you are concerned about the effects of recent stock market volatility, rising inflation and economic uncertainty on your retirement funds, you are not alone. While these challenging and uncertain times can be disheartening in the short-term, having a long-term perspective on the market, economy and your retirement plan is key.

To explore these issues and more, Town & Country FCU has invited Scott Meade from the Capital Group to lead a discussion on “Retirement Planning in Challenging Times”. Scott will provide an overview on where the market and economy stand now and highlight trends and indicators of where the market is heading in the months ahead. He will also explore:

• How the mid-term elections will affect the markets and economy

• Examine how the world in 2030 will impact long term investors

• Things you can do right now to fine tune your retirement planning

There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions.
