The World Money Shows
Canada, the United States, Europe

Men and women looking to learn more how the investing world works should pay serious attention to the work being done by Charles and Kim Githler, Chairman and President - CEO of the company behind 17 events in the USA, Canada, England and China, and their staff. There's a lot of information at web site.
Canada's Gordon Pape, left, is a favorite speaker at some Money Show events.

He was very well received at The Money Show's Toronto session last fall.

Many American investors know him as the editor and publisher of four newsletters including: The Canada Report, a monthly newsletter for US residents who want to invest in Canadian securities.

FinanceSpa has attended several Money Show events, and was impressed by the balance between sophisticated information and presentations where the speakers worked hard to make everything clear for people who were new to investing and financial management.

A lot of information for not much money.
The Money Show organization packs their conferences with speakers and exhibits, and basic registration is free. There are some paid events, and these are outlined on the web sites dedicated to each show. Start here for more info on all shows.

Perhaps the best known speaker at the Los Vegas show is Steve Forbes, Editor in Chief of Forbes magazine.

CMC Markets holds regular seminars around Canada. Plus, all CMC seminars show guests a live demonstration of its  Marketmaker trading platforms.

CMC Markets serves advanced, sophisticated investors, and it not a place for beginners. That said, if you have some experience and are willing to pay serious attention to your investments, CMC Markets is worth investigating.

FinanceSpa has attended CMC seminars, and found them well done, informative, and not filled with unnecessary jargon.
