Advanced Investment Seminar - Chicago, IL

This seminar is aimed at doctors who have some knowledge and background in investments (although we realize there are always less experienced investors in the room who are looking to learn more about investing from someone who is not selling anything).  The goal is to get wealthy by investing our savings in a sensible long-term manner without letting investing take over our lives.

AGD Subject Code: 550 (Practice Management)
Teaching Method: Lecture

This seminar will focus on:

  • The straight forward, three common sense steps that make doctor families wealthy.
  • How to select great companies to invest in for the long-term.
  • How to tell when the great company’s stock price is right to purchase.  Even a great company will not be a good investment if we over pay for it.
  • A simple method for diversifying through mutual funds.
  • Bonds – What makes the most sense in the current market environment.  We’ll consider Treasury bonds, municipal bonds, corporate bonds, inflation protected bonds, laddered portfolios, mutual funds, etc.

Too many doctors experienceinvestment paralysis.  They are so unsure of what to do in these unsettling investment times that they let too much money build up, long term, in money funds and CDs.  This seminar will help you understand that there is always uncertainty in the markets.  It will help you understand how stocks and bonds work.  By using a financial calculator to work examples, it will help you to understand how to analyze the math underlying an investment you are considering.  It will help you to design an investment strategy that you are comfortable with (no one strategy is right for everyone), and that should help break through investment paralysis.


 As in the past, we will highlight guest speakers who are experts in their respective fields.  This will be a “working” seminar.  We will present a course workbook for greater audience participation.  Please bring a financial calculator.  As in the past, the recommended pocket calculator is the Hewlett-Packard 12-C financial calculator.  It is a popular calculator and is generally available in most electronic and department stores.  If you cannot bring that one, be sure to bring another financial calculator.
