RCC Lifelong Learning builds women’s financial savvy

“Money Management Basics and Confidence Building for Women” will be the subject of an upcoming course from the Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning (RILL). It will be held at the main branch of the Gloucester County Public Library in Gloucester Courthouse on May 3, 10, and 17 (Thursdays) from 10 a.m. – Noon, and the instructor will be Clayton W. James.

Women are rapidly becoming more interested and engaged in the decision-making and management details of their finances, wealth management, and investments. This course is designed specifically for women (and if they choose their “significant others”) to learn the basics of finances, wealth management, asset allocation, and income generation. The three sessions will cover all of the entry-level information a woman needs to feel confident and knowledgeable about the management of her finances.

Clayton W. James is a registered financial advisor who serves as the managing director of Jamestowne Investments, LLC. He graduated from Hampden Sydney College in 1991 with a bachelor’s degree in mathematical economics and has been serving clients in the investment management industry since 2003.

Advance registration, with a tuition payment of $35, is required to take this course.
