Money 101: Personal Finance, Investing, and Retirement for Residents of Japan
Many teachers in Japan would like to get their finances in order, but aren’t quite sure where to start. This exposes them to three big potential dangers: not doing anything, doing the wrong thing, and being taken advantage of by ‘advisors’ or financial institutions. This workshop will cover basic aspects of personal finance and investing, as well as specific rules, products, and investing strategies for Japan.
