Back To Events

In follow up to our Retirement on Trial Film Screening & Panel Discussion on March 27, 2024, the Inns of Court Victoria will be hosting a 2 hour in-person seminar on the topic of Investing Strategies for Retiring as a Lawyer. In the panel discussion at Retirement on Trial, interest was expressed in a follow up session with on practical strategies for preparing, as a lawyer, for a good retirement, including through investing. This seminar is organized in follow up to that event and interest in further learning on how to prepare to retire from a career as a lawyer.

Theme:

Retirement on Trial panel speaker F. Kenneth Walton, K.C. (“Ken”), Pinder K. Cheema, K.C., and Robyn Walle will conduct a seminar on self-directed stock investing as a method of funding your retirement. The seminar will be most beneficial to lawyers in their 30s and 40s who will not have a well-funded employer pension. This seminar will provide information that you are unlikely to find elsewhere. Topics include opening a self-directed account, educating yourself on how the stock market works, sources of information on stock selection, their experience with the purchase and holding of US stocks, dividends, mutual funds, and stock brokers. They have been successful in their own investing, preparing themselves well for their own retirements. They are not seeking to manage your investments, but are pleased to share their knowledge and experience to help you prepare for a good retirement.
