My Money – Free money information sessions for women of all ages

We all want to feel confident when it comes to managing money.  With so many conflicting messages from banks, investment advisors and other companies, it can be hard to know where to find reliable and accurate information. Understanding where to go for information can be a helpful first step.

Whether you have just moved into your first home or are entering retirement, the free My Money sessions are designed for women of every age and stage. You will better understand key financial topics and know where to get help if you need it.
