Building Black Wealth Series: Acquiring and Leveraging Assets

Saturday, June 17 at 11:00am to 1:30pm

UO Portland, Naito, Flat Classroom 109 NW Naito Parkway, Portland, OR 97209

Presented by the UO Black Alumni Network in partnership with National Association of Real Estate Brokers Oregon Chapter and Umpqua Home Lending

How do wealthy people get their wealth? How do you build your net worth? It's simple—wealth is built by acquiring and leveraging assets. Whether inherited or not, at some point someone in the family’s lineage acquired and leveraged assets.

Building assets is simply increasing the amount of money or access to money that you have by acquiring “things” that have present or future monetary value. Increasing your appreciating assets and minimizing your liabilities is the key to building wealth, but it's easier said than done. This is especially true if you are starting from a deficit and haven’t been exposed to the tools and strategies to create wealth. 

In part two of our Black Wealth series, we'll be exploring different types of assets and how to get started with building wealth, as well as strategies for leveraging those assets to maximize your returns and achieve your financial goals. Whether you're just starting out or are a seasoned investor, this session is a great opportunity to connect with others in the community and learn from the best.

Join us for an engaging and interactive conversation on building wealth through strategic asset acquisition and management. Our panel of experts will be on hand to offer guidance and practical tips, while also facilitating an open discussion where attendees can share their own experiences and insights.

Brunch, catered by a local black-owned business, will be provided for in person guests. Space is limited, so be sure to register early to secure your spot. We can't wait to see you there for this special family-style conversation about building black wealth.
