Many of us especially those in the healthcare sector do not have exposure to financial knowledge in school and are usually in a dilemma when it comes to investing their savings and hard-earned income. Most of the time, these savings are left idle in a savings accounts with the plan of wanting to invest once we have gained enough knowledge. However, reality is that be it in the private or public sector, most of us don’t have the time to read books or attend expensive courses to be informed about the available opportunities and equip ourselves with information to choose the right medium of growing or protecting our savings according to individual risk appetites. A pre-event survey, shows that close to 800 people are interested to sign up for this course if it were to be conducted.
