About This Event

IPOs, ETFs, SPACs. Investing concepts have entered the mainstream in unprecedented ways. Google Searches for "how to invest" spiked to all-time highs in early 2021, and retail investor activity nearly doubled year over year between 2020 and 2021. With so many headlines about what's happening in the markets, this session will serve as an overview of the state of retail investing today. To what can we attribute its rise in popularity, and what's different about investing in the stock market today vs. what you might have learned in high school economics class?
