Time Session Registration
2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET Session 1 | Who cares about the 2020 elections?
Investors are wondering how the fall elections will impact the market and the truth is — markets don’t care. Our Elections 2020 presentation focuses solely on what should matter to investors. In our opinion, everyone should tune out the noise and focus on fundamental drivers like economic growth, corporate profits and other key data that have historically had a much bigger impact on stocks, even during election years. Join our session to learn what data and indicators may help investors create and refine their long-term plans.
3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET Session 2 | What do we really know about index funds?
You can’t watch TV or read any financial news without hearing about indexes. Whether up or down, these are often the lead story. In the early years, indexes were a way for investors and portfolio managers to keep score as returns were compared to index benchmarks asset managers around the world sought to beat. Now, indexes have further evolved into a basis for specific investment strategies. While we see how the performance of indexes became a proxy for the performance of financial markets, how are they constructed and what potential biases do they present? And how did indexes become so instrumental as the basis for investment strategies? Please join us as we explore these topics and answer your index questions.
4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. ET Session 3 | Bond market volatility: Identifying risk & opportunities
We have seen massive equity-like volatility to the global bond markets in 2020 and pandemic induced drawdowns of over 25% in some of the highest quality corners of the U.S. bond market. In many cases, downside volatility has exceeded the levels produced during the Global Financial Crisis of 2008. Historic Fed intervention continues to move us forward but investors are left with three big questions:
  • Are there any bargains remaining in the current investment landscape after the recent surge in prices?
  • Do we need to distinguish between the issuers who may never be able to stand without “life support” and the issuers who have a more confident future and need short-term liquidity help?
  • Why does Fed intervention currently mean different things for the bond and equity markets?
Please join us for this session where we help investors understand risks and opportunities in the days ahead.
