The goal of InvestOAK is to advance members’ knowledge and understanding of investment options and strategies for retirement. Membership experience ranges widely. There is no actual monetary aspect to the club’s activities and is not investment advice.

The InvestOak club meeting will typically feature a new investment topic each month, a Market Update and discussion with your participation encouraged. If you have a topic of interest or want deeper involvement in Club activities, let’s talk.

The topic for June’s meeting is Alternative Investments
