Connect: #Investing

Venue: St John's Bar & Eatery, 5 Cable Street, Te Aro

Assets, financial planning, investment portfolio, diversified risk – scary words for wealthy old people and Wall Street hotshots. Well no more. There was a time when investing your meagre nest egg meant bewildering, mind-numbing, endless hours with your financial planner, nodding in pretend understanding at terms so dull we dare not utter them here. Luckily for us, technology has come to the rescue.

Through the next episode in the Connect: Talks to Inspire series you’ll be exploring the new and exciting investment possibilities opened up to the masses by innovation in the financial tech sector. And to take you on this journey of wealth building we have none other than Brooke Roberts, Co-Founder, Director, and CEO of investment platform Sharesies.

Sharesies wants to create a financially empowered generation, through giving someone with $5 the same investment opportunities as someone with $500,000. Sharesies philosophy is that people should be able to invest regular amounts, building their investment portfolio one payday at a time. Sharesies now has over 40,000 investors who have invested over $45m. Brooke previously has experience leading large savings and investment portfolios, startups, product management and global marketing.

As always, St. John’s Bar & Eatery will be providing a delicious buffet lunch with a drink on arrival. Coupled with an elegant venue, an opportunity to network with other future moguls, and a market insider presentation, your returns are looking up already. Plus you'll have the chance to win 2 x return flights from any NZ port to either Sydney, Melbourne or the Gold Coast courtesy of Jetstar.
