Diverse Views on What’s Next for the Markets

July 19, 2021


Forecasting market movements is difficult at any juncture, but even more so during periods of uncertainty. Tune in to this virtual conversation to hear diverse professionals discuss their perspectives on what the future holds for the market and how they plan to reach their diversity goals in their firms and their asset selection.

Featuring a range of outlooks from asset owners, CIOs of firms both large and small, and firms that manage both traditional and alternative assets, attendees will gain insight not only from the variety of forecast perspectives presented, but also from the firsthand knowledge and experience our presenters bring to the discussion.

CFA Society New York is thrilled to welcome CAIA members and members of other societies. Please register with CAIA or via your respective local society to secure your place at our upcoming webinars.
