A rising tide has lifted all boats the past nine years due to unprecedented monetary stimulus from central banks in response to the Global Financial Crisis; however, the tides are shifting and we may soon find out who has been swimming naked. We invite you to a discussion about the status of the equity market cycle and how to prepare your portfolio for its inevitable turn. Our keynote speaker Mark Yusko, Founder, CEO and Chief Investment Officer at Morgan Creek Capital Management, will explore the return of volatility, passive vs. active management, quantitative tightening and many more top-down topics. A proponent of the University Endowment Model of investing, Yusko is a featured speaker at the upcoming 72nd CFA Institute Annual Conference in London. He previously served as the Chief Investment Officer for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC). Our investor and journalist panel will expand on these topics and discuss the role of the press in markets, particularly as it relates to holding management teams accountable and calling out bad actors. A networking reception will follow.
