Economic Outlook and Policies

CFA Society of Chicago

Wednesday, January 16, 2019 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Join us as our speakers each discuss the economic outlook and markets in the wake of changes in tax, regulatory, trade and monetary policies during the first two years of Trump administration.

  • What are the biggest/key themes in the economy and markets? Why? How do they translate into opportunities and risks? How are experts implementing these ideas and positioning their portfolios?
  • What is going to be the impact of the tax reform?
  • How successful the Fed will be in normalizing interest rates and shrinking its balance sheet?
  • How regulations will affect the environment and financial services?
  • Have the forces of globalization been a positive or negative for the US and other countries? What is the impact  of globalization on increased income inequality?
  • How will these affect long-term growth and how financial markets are likely to play out?
