Hello Bahrain Bogleheads!

I would like to arrange our first Bahrain Chapter meeting and proposing the following Agenda:

1) Introductions
2) Share and discuss our investment goals
3) Bahrain GOSI Pension income

Is there anything else you would wish to add to the Agenda and also what time best works for you? Im thinking we can meet at one of the coffee shops in Juffair or we can also arrange a virtual meeting.

Look forward to meeting you all :happy

Its great that some people have already joined.

I'm planning to put together a quick reference guide for bank transfer rates that were discussed in another thread.

All welcome to join around 730 pm to research & update the rates for the top banks/financial companies.

I'm sure we will have lots more to discuss too.
