May 28 Webinar On Saving For College In Volatile Market (2)


Webinar: Saving for College and Keeping Calm Amid Market Turbulence

Ohio’s 529 Plan, CollegeAdvantage, and BlackRock, a global investment manager, want to ease your mind when it comes to investing and saving for higher education during these uncertain times.

Join us at 11 a.m. EST on Thursday, May 28, 2020, for “Saving for College and Keeping Calm Amid Market Turbulence," a free webinar on how to save for higher education in a turbulent market. During our webinar, BlackRock representatives Sheff Faulkner and Mark Peterson will offer guidance for those who are saving – or those who want to save – for future higher education expenses. 

Since the onset of COVID-19, the markets have become extremely volatile. With an unsettled market, savers can be fearful and uncertain as to what they should do. To help ease these anxieties, Ohio’s 529 Plan and BlackRock are hosting a webinar to help you navigate through these rocky times.

Moderated by Tim Gorrell, Executive Director for CollegeAdvantage, BlackRock representatives will shed light on:

  • How to continue and even broaden one’s savings habits;
  • What it means to be a “Student of the Market” with emphasis on diversifying your portfolio to help weather the storm; and
  • The “Psychology of Investing.”

Webinar participants will have an opportunity to submit questions and get answers from the experts.

The webinar is one part of our efforts for the national celebration for 529 Day. 529 Day was created to raise awareness regarding the importance of saving for higher education and how investing in a 529 college savings plan can help make saving easier. Regardless of what’s happening with the market, it’s important to save and plan. 

The webinar is free but all attendees are asked to register. To reserve your space, click here and complete the registration form. The webinar, “Saving for College and Keeping Calm Amid Market Turbulence,” will be held 11 a.m. to noon EST Thursday, May 28, 2020.
