Personal Finance: A Modern Girl’s Guide (5/16/2007)


Manisha Thakor and Sharon Kedar, Financial Consultants; Authors, A Modern Girl’s Guide to Personal Finance

We may dress in designer jeans, stylish heels and carry the latest handbag, but do we really have it all together? Despite outward appearances of affluence, over half of women in their 20s and 30s report that “money is for spending, not for saving.” Recognized in the industry for their financial acumen, Manisha Thakor and Sharon Kedar will tell us how to reach savings goals, invest in stocks, use index funds, super size retirement savings, finance a house and protect ourselves financially in a relationship. Thakor and Kedar have worked as financial analysts, portfolio managers and executives for leading investment management firms.
