Elections, Lockdowns, and Continual Disruptions
The U.S. election has consumed our attention, making it easy to lose sight of what’s going on around the rest of the world. And, the rest of the world is managing its own set of crises—creating both risks and opportunities. Therefore, monitoring geopolitical risks and international exposure has never been more important—especially when attempting to maintain a resilient portfolio.
In this important one-hour webinar, John Sitilides, diplomacy consultant to the U.S. Department of State and head of Trilogy Advisors, and Lauren Goodwin of New York Life Investments will discuss the importance of a geopolitical framework for investing to help you better understand what these geopolitical shifts mean for your clients’ portfolios.
Join us for a live webcast to discuss:
- How China’s technological “Cold War” is shaping the global economy
- Russia’s continued attempts to destabilize western markets
- The importance of a resurgent Europe
