Welcome to our 2015-16 program year.  One of the overriding themes we hear from plan sponsors is "How do we interpret the current economy and global markets?"   Please join Gary Schlossberg, Sr. Economist with Wells Fargo for a discussion of the economy, the markets and a perspective that will be insightful to everyone in pensions, retirement plans and other benefits. We will discuss:
  • Are we on track for the long awaited policy change on interest rates? 
  • What are the ramifications of rising rates?
  • Where does the US equity market stand now that we are more than six years into a bull market?
  • How are global events affecting the bond market?
  • What effect does a strengthening dollar have on the US and other global markets?
  • What is the effect of the turmoil in Greece and the Chinese equity markets? 
  • What should we watch next?

We look forward to seeing you at this event.
