The AAII Chicago Chapter presents...

"Navigating the Capital Markets in a Post-2008 World"

    Discussed by:

    Jeff Weniger, CFA
    Assistant Vice President and Senior Investment Analyst, Harris Private Bank

In the politically stable three decades prior to the financial crisis, the process of identifying attractive investment opportunities required little focus on social and political dynamics. Much has changed since 2008. Today’s landscape requires a greater understanding of political maneuvering, state solvency dynamics and central bank interventionism to grasp the moving pieces that affect the capital markets. Jeff Weniger of Harris Private Bank will discuss his perspectives on the broad dynamics that will influence markets in both the short and long term.

Attend This Meeting and Learn...
What asset classes are advantageous now and why
Why it is critical to anticipate and focus on artificial market influences, including government and central bank interventionism
How to consider coming social changes (entitlements, energy scarcity) that will impact our investment performance
