Investment Forum “New horizons for your savings”


The event will be held on February 23, 2017 in Sofia.  FLI is one of the organizations supporting the event. Often in conversation we discuss how to increase our income and where to invest our  savings wisely. Interest rates on deposits in Bulgarian banks are slightly above or below 0.5%. If we saved money that will be needed soon, probably it is better to keep them in the bank. But if we have to deposit funds to allocate for pensions, education of children, and long-term savings family lost benefits will be enormous. Experts advise such money be directed to modern financial instruments. These include supplementary pension insurance, investment insurance, mutual funds and others. During the discussion financial experts  will talk about  the available  financial tools on the market, there will be representatives of  Financial Supervision Commission, academia, business.
