Financial investing is an important asset to have in a portfolio however with reward comes risk. Students were shown that prices fluctuate, and the market does not always move in their favor.  

The difference of going long and going short and the explanation of bid and ask prices provided with real market examples gave students an understanding of how the stock market can be risky and what methods can be used to manage their risk such as, diversification, reinvesting dividends and using index benchmarks.

The imperativeness of long-term value investing, and dividend payments was emphasized in the presentation. The objective was to give students a sense of being able to invest for the future and watch their money grow by investing in quality companies.

Meyer states that “Throughout the past year the international middle class decreased by 150 million people. Within the next three years the IMF anticipates a 3% reduction in the global economy. The importance of teaching our youth and learning financial literacy is becoming more imperative as the costs of living increase globally.”
