Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the October 17th premiere of a new webinar “How to Read Financial Statements and Financial Journalism," designed to help investors evaluate financial journalism-separating the wheat from the chaff, so to speak- as well as how to look at the financial statements of a potential investment and determine what the numbers mean. Moderator Chris Cahill of Lowis & Gellen LLP joins panelists from EisnerAmper LLP, Huron Consulting Group, Sprott Global, as well as J. Richard Claywell CPA, to discuss financial statements and financial journalism.

Financial Poise

How can an investor separate the wheat from the chaff in financial journalism? How can an investor look at the financial statements of a potential investment and decide for herself what the numbers mean?

This webinar series is intended for the investor who has an intermediate level of investing experience and knowledge. It assumes you know the difference between stocks and bonds, and the difference between investing in publicly traded stock and investing in a mutual fund that, in turn, invests in publicly traded stocks. It assumes further that there are a good many things you do not know but which you are quite capable of picking up quickly. The PERSONAL FINANCE & INVESTING FUNDAMENTALS 2.0 Financial Poise webinar series begins with fundamentals, such as the concepts of alpha and beta and how to approach reading financial statements and financial journalism. The series then turns to look closely at certain alternative investment objects of fascination: investment in VC/PE/HF (private equity, venture capital, and hedge funds) and investment in "hard" assets like real estate.

The second episode of the PERSONAL FINANCE & INVESTING FUNDAMENTALS 2.0
webinar series is How to Read Financial Statements and Financial Journalism, airing on October 17th at 11am CST (REGISTER HERE), and features host Chris Cahill of Lowis & Gellen LLP. He is joined by Hubert Klein of EisnerAmper LLP, John Levitske of Huron Consulting Group, Jason Stevens of Sprott Global, and J. Richard Claywell CPA to discuss strategies for investor evaluation of financial journalism and financial statements.

Journalists -- financial and otherwise -- are not paid to compare carefully the strongest pro- and con- arguments of a proposition. Strong incentives push journalists toward producing loud click-bait. There is no day of reckoning for their views, as there is for investors who do as suggested. Readers, for their part, tend to click what confirms their own biases. How can an investor separate the wheat from the chaff in financial journalism? How can an investor look at the financial statements of a potential investment and decide for herself what the numbers mean? These are the topics for this webinar.

The PERSONAL FINANCE & INVESTING FUNDAMENTALS 2.0 webinar series is sponsored by EisnerAmper. The third episode in the series is "Alternative Assets Part 1: Investing in Venture Capital, Private Equity, and Hedge Funds," airing on November 14, 2017 at 11am CST. The final episode in the series is "Alternative Assets Part 2: Investing in Real Estate and Other “Hard” Assets," airing on December 12, 2017 at 11am CST. All episodes premiere live through West LegalEdCenter and then are made available on-demand.

Each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to business owners and executives without much background in these areas. Yet, each episode is proven to be valuable to seasoned professionals.
