The Time Value of Money
Tue February 21, 2017: 11:00 am-12:30 pm EST
This is a free webinar hosted by the Personal Finance concentration area of the Military Families Learning Network.
The time value of money (e.g., present and future value of a lump sum or an annuity) is one of the most fundamental building blocks of financial goal-setting and decision-making. This 90-minute webinar will discuss basic time value of money concepts and the application of time value of money concepts to real-life financial planning decisions. The webinar will also model “hands-on” calculations that participants can use with others (e.g., clients and students) and describe online resources (e.g., videos, calculators, and curricula) that teach time value of money concepts. Participants should bring a financial calculator to complete a series of financial decision-making problems that will be presented during the webinar.
Participants will need to do manual calculations during this webinar. Please join the webinar with a calculator or have access to an online calculator (a link is available in the Event Materials below).
