TOMS RIVER – Empower yourself with financial knowledge at the Financial FEST!
On Monday, 16 November 2009 at 7:00 pm at the Toms River Branch of the Ocean County Library, financial gurus Antoinette Babek and Hollis Colquhoun will help you gain control over your finances with practical tips and advice.
For over 25 years, Ms. Babek was a managing partner of an industrial company and was in charge of marketing, business strategy and finance. Currently, she is an Accredited Financial Counselor and Certified Personal Finance Counselor for a nonprofit credit counseling agency. For the past three years she has counseled thousands of clients throughout the United States.
Ms. Colquhoun is an Accredited Financial Counselor and has over twenty years of experience in the financial industry. Starting out as an institutional trader and salesperson for a Wall Street brokerage firm, she later became one of its first female partners. She worked in the corporate bond departments of several New York firms then moved into the distressed securities market where she helped set up a new brokerage operation for one of Wall Street’s masters of value investing. Two years ago, Ms. Colquhoun was hired by a nonprofit credit counseling agency and received certification as an Accredited Financial Counselor and as a Certified Personal Finance Counselor. Over a two-year period, she counseled thousands of clients who were drowning in debt and in need of financial guidance. She also conducted workshops on budgeting and credit for local community organizations and New Jersey State welfare-to-work programs.
