Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 29, 2015
Financial Poise, The ChamberWise Education Consortium, and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce a joint webinar series, “Alternative Investment Basics Series” for 2015. The first episode, “Are you an Accredited Investor and If You Are, So What?” premieres on May 7, 2015 at 12pm CT.
Speakers in this series include:
- Benjamin Alexander, Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger LLP

- Sara Hanks, CrowdCheck
- Mary Kohart, Elliott Greenleaf
- Huiwen Leo, CrowdCheck

As with all Financial Poise webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes: think sitcom rather than soap opera. The first episode, Are you an Accredited Investor and If You Are, So What? premieres on May 7, 2015.
The JOBS Act of 2012 lifted the ban that previously prevented private placements from being advertised. As a direct result, for the first time, millions of accredited investors are only now beginning to understand that there are investment options available to them that they never before considered. This webinar series was created for those millions of Americans who meet the federal government’s definition of “accredited investor,” to help them decide if some of their investment dollars should be allocated away from stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and the like and into the asset class that is commonly referred to as “alternatives,” which include PE, VC, Hedge funds, private placements, and hard assets (which include a wide array of things, such as gold, land, and comic books).
The other episodes in the series include those listed below.
- What is the JOBS Act and Why Should You Care? (June 4,2015)
- What is Equity Crowdfunding and Should it Matter to You? (July 9, 2015)
- Angel Groups vs. 506(c) Platforms (August 6, 2015)
