|9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PT||Session 1 | How markets affect you: BlackRock’s 2020 Q1 outlook

You want to build diversification into your portfolio, but how do you choose an ETF? With thousands of choices available to investors, searching for, finding, and picking ETFs can feel daunting. Professionals from iShares and Fidelity come together to provide a useful framework for evaluating ETFs and indexes, walk through Fidelity tools that can help, and give simple ETF ideas to help you get started. Learn how to build quality diversification into your portfolio with ETFs.
|11:00 a.m. – Noon PT||Session 3 | Putting your cash to work
The purchasing power of your cash stash can diminish as inflation eats away at it over time. Short-duration bond ETFs can potentially add more income while helping you step out of cash and meet short- or long-term investment goals. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach. For many, it helps to think of cash in layers, and segment it based on how soon you will need to use it. Learn how to develop a cash segmentation strategy and the tools iShares ETFs offer to invest cash and help balance duration and risk to help make your cash work harder for you.
ETFs are subject to market fluctuation and the risks of their underlying investments. ETFs are subject to management fees and other expenses. Unlike mutual funds, ETF shares are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than their NAV, and are not individually redeemed from the fund.
Keep in mind that investing involves risk. The value of your investment will fluctuate over time, and you may gain or lose money.
Diversification and asset allocation do not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss.
