Thanks for Jessica, our curriculum guru for uncovering these two videos (here and here; they run a combined total of 5 minutes) which provide opposing viewpoints on approaches to investing.  While students are viewing these videos, have them answer these questions:

  • Summarize the pros/cons of each approach
  • Who is providing this specific advice/who is the source?
  • Do you have any additional questions as it relates to robo-advisers?
  • Which approach are you comfortable with?  Why?

Tim Ranzetta

Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
