Lecture to Explore Pros and Cons of Hiring
Investment Advisor

(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) -- Continuing and Graduate studies at Moravian College will hold a lecture titled, "Is Now the Time to Seek Professional Investment Advice?," on Tuesday, April 10, at 7:00 p.m., in Collier Hall of Science. Richard Brown, investment broker with Robinson and Robinson of Allentown, , will discuss how to assess the cost of working with an advisor in the context of a severely depressed stock market. He will outline the various forms of compensation – hourly, fee-based, percentage, and commission-based programs. He will also explain how mutual funds are costed to the investor. With this information, the investor can better decide whether there is a benefit that outweighs the expense.

The lecture will be held in the Collier Hall of Science, Room 204, on the Moravian College campus, 1200 Main Street, in Bethlehem. Brown will field questions during and after the presentation.

The public is invited and admission is free. For registration or directions, contact the Division of Continuing and Graduate Studies at Moravian College at 610-861-1400.
