Welcome to Financial Markets 101: A Beginner's Guide to Investing
FEP Finance Club has the pleasure of welcoming you to the Financial Markets 101: A Beginner’s Guide to Investing.
Our club’s first priority since the very beginning has always been to enlighten our own members and the community itself, training them with both hard and soft skills. Hence, we hopefully foresee the enhancement of the professional and social world, with special regards to the fields associated with the financial markets.
Along with the turbulent pandemic that has surrounded us lately, there have not been simple times for the financial markets as well, with several disruptive quarrels arising. Thus, it became vital to speak about the matters at hand. Having this in mind, this event plans on instructing all of its participants on the essential knowledge of the financial markets and, therefore, providing the crucial flairs needed to invest in the near future, making them also aware of both the spurs and the threats that might surge within time.
On the behalf of FEP Finance Club and also on a personal note, I hope this event exceeds your expectations as well as ours, fostering and deepening our understanding of the financial world.
