Financial Foundations for Filipino Americans

Session 2

English Building, EB 160

11:20 AM - 12:30 PM

Building wealth requires that you invest. Investing requires that you have other financial foundations in place. What exactly are those foundations? And for Filipino Americans, how do cultural norms both support and hinder our ability to build those foundations? In this workshop, we’ll talk through various personal finance concepts to help you get your financial house in order. From having a debt payoff plan and emergency fund, to making sure you have regular “money dates,” you’ll walk away with a financial to-do list that will protect your assets as you build wealth.
