Ten trillion dollars in Americans' retirement savings are invested in large and small accounts managed by banks, brokerages, mutual funds, and insurance companies. But whether your IRA or 401(k) will assure a safe retirement is largely a gamble.

At this month's meetup, we'll consider whether continuing to invest with Wall Street is a smart move. To start the session rolling, we'll be showing the award winning, "The Retirement Gamble" as an opener at the meeting.

Building off reporting from the groundbreaking special "Money, Power and Wall Street" by the investigative reporting organization, FRONTLINE, the movie, "The Retirement Gamble" raises troubling questions about whether America's financial institutions are, in actuality, protecting our savings. "The Retirement Gamble" reveals how fees, self-dealing, and kickbacks bring great profits to Wall Street while imperiling the prospects of a secure future for individuals. The film questions who has the consumer's best interests in mind, and whether there is a better way to manage our retirements.

We, at Colorado Crowdfunding, believe that the best person to manage your money is you ... come and find out why at our next meetup on May 28th.

Even if you have absolutely no interest in investment-based crowdfunding or even in crowdfunding itself, you owe it to yourself to find out more about what's happening to your money and to your prospects for a happy retirement.
