Putting risks and rates into context

Macroeconomic growth and corporate earnings across the globe continue to be strong, particularly in the U.S. Meanwhile, investors remain uneasy given fears of trade wars, the rise of global populism and tightening financial conditions. Many wonder if the market that has persisted throughout the post-crisis years is changing.

On July 11, we will discuss why we think the second half of 2018 will bring steady growth and considerations for preparing portfolios amidst rising rates and increased volatility.

Discussion Topics:

  • How geopolitical risks could influence markets
  • The impact of tightening global monetary policy
  • Ways advisor portfolios may be positioned for growth, but not for a slowdown
  • Answers to live, viewer-submitted questions
