The South Pacific Stock Exchange (SPSE) is bringing back its prominent one-hour lunch seminars.

These seminars are part of the Exchange’s ongoing Investor Education Program initiatives. The general concept of saving, budgeting and investing to meet financial goals by creating wealth remains on every individual’s mind but many fail to take any action.

Through this seminar, the Exchange intends to ensure that people are given sufficient information and contact for advice that makes them more committed to start saving and investing for their future financial goals through investing in the stock market.

This one-hour session will feature a brief introduction by the Exchange followed by a detailed presentation by one of the RBF licensed investment advisers, Mr Praful Patel. Mr Patel runs his accounting practice out of Melbourne, Australia and has recently set up an office in Lautoka, Fiji. He brings a wealth of knowledge through his experience in stock market investments and will be sharing many investing tips together with key elements of financial planning and wealth creation. The presentation will be followed by a session of question and answers as well as giving participants a chance to talk to the available stockbroker representatives.

SPSE Chief Executive Officer, Ms Jinita Prasad said “everyone today appreciates the need to save for their individual financial goals and all goals can only be realised through proper financial planning. Investing in the stock market promises higher returns but it may not be suitable to everyone. It is certainly not a get-rich quick scheme and trying to treat it as such will probably end up in disappointment. However, if you are well aware of your financial objectives, the stock market can present you with quite attractive opportunities.

During this seminar, participants will be able to consult investment advisers and stock broker representatives to receive advice and place orders to purchase shares in securities most suited to them”.

The stipulated venue of the seminar is at the Tanoa Plaza Hotel in Suva on 16th May 2013 commencing at 1pm. This is a free of charge event, however registration is vital. Registrations can be done by calling the SPSE office on 330 4130 or e-mailing your interests on info@spse.com.fj
