Retirement plan participants invited to free quarterly market update workshop, Tuesday, May 8

 As part of an ongoing service to Vanderbilt Retirement Plan participants, Human Resources offers a variety of free events sponsored by its vendors. The next one is on Tuesday, May 8 from 5-6 p.m. at the Vanderbilt Marriott Hotel. Presented by Fidelity, the workshop will take a look at what’s been influencing the financial markets as well as guidance on what it means for you.

Topics include:
• Factors affecting the performance of domestic and international equity markets
• Driving forces behind bond-market interest rate and valuation changes
• How to manage your portfolio based on current and historical market activity

The workshop is open to all faculty and staff, regardless of age or participation in a retirement plan. Food and drinks will be served. Please RSVP by May 4 by calling Fidelity at 800-642-7131 or visiting the Fidelity website.

As a reminder, Vanderbilt employees who participate in the retirement plan are eligible for free retirement counseling sessions with certified professionals. There is no cost for the session; it is a benefit of being a participant in the Vanderbilt University Retirement Plan. To schedule an appointment, see the Individual Retirement Plan Counseling website.
