If you google important questions like “what is a stock” or “what is a bond”, often what comes up are articles that are written in financial language for people already in the financial industry. I found simple explanations on how money worked, how to think about finances, how to think about assets or liabilities and how to invest to be so much harder to find than necessary.

We’ll discuss some very important personal finance topics such as compound interest, the risk return tradeoff, what is a stock, bond, or fund, and go over some popular investment philosophies. By the end of the course, these concepts should be intuitively familiar to you. You will additionally be able to identify risks and previously unforeseen issues in investment opportunities that are presented to you.
