The Benefits Office and Fidelity Investments will hold a 401(k) Investment Fair for MIT employees on Tuesday, Oct. 22 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the third floor of the Stratton Student Center.
The event will help employees not currently participating in MIT's 401(k) plan to enroll, and will provide investment information and resources to help with retirement planning. Workshops will include "Basics of Investing"; "Understanding, Selecting and Evaluating Investment Options"; and "An Overview of the MIT Retirement Plans." Additionally, there will be sessions between 7 and 8:30 a.m. for third-shift employees.
There will be two keynote speakers: Professor Andrew Lo of the Sloan School of Management, and Paul Antico, a portfolio manager from Fidelity Investments. Employees will be able to log on to their accounts in the Student Center's Cyber Cafe as well as speak with Fidelity representatives.
