In my efforts to increase New Zealand and Australian membership, I am on a cruise ship somewhere in the western Pacific. This note comes to you from there. Not taking the International Date Line nor the Sydney, Australia clock time into account, we sent out our survey near the beginning of April 2019. (Should dental students receive investment education?)
Most of our subscribers are dentists with many veterinarians and optometrists included. Our survey would have been more closely linked to our membership had we asked: “Should health care students receive investment education?” Our members who are not in health care would likely be interested in the results of this survey as well.
- 53% of our members responded. (Average response rates to surveys are 10% – 15%. Pollsters could improve results by simplifying their surveys.)
- 85% of those who responded said “yes”.
- 15% said “no”. Probably the negative ones feel that the curriculum is too crowded as it is.
High-income earners such as healthcare workers are the target of aggressive salespeople.
The need for unbiased investment education is obvious. The Monday Morning Program strives to provide it.
