Kearney Public Library is offering a virtual class on its Financial Ratings Series online database for patrons. This class will be via Zoom on Wednesday, November 3 from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.
Weiss Financial Ratings offers independent, unbiased financial strength ratings of banks, credit unions and insurance companies and conservative buy-hold-sell investment ratings of thousands of stocks, mutual funds and exchange-traded funds. You can even set up a personal account to create a watchlist and get upgrade/downgrade notifications. For those of you on Medicare, there is also a great tool to help you evaluate the available Medicare Supplement Insurance plans and make sure you are getting the best price. Access to this database is FREE with your library card!
Jessica Moody from Weiss Financial Ratings will provide a deep dive into the functionality of the database and teach us how to create an account, set up a watchlist for your bank, insurance company, stocks and mutual funds, how to create research tools (screeners) and run a Medigap report.
Registration is required by 8:00am on Wednesday, November 3. Please visit www.kearneylib.org and click on “Events” to register, or call the library’s reference department at 308-233-3256.
