Should I stay Invested?

Come join us for wine tasting, a bite to eat and discussion of the global investment landscape.  

Have you noticed that the value of your portfolio has been fluctuating a lot lately? You're not alone! We've seen fairly steady growth for 5 years following the great financial and real estate crisis of 2007-2008 and the end of the last recession in 2009. But now markets are beginning to show some weaknesses, with double-digit losses in most major US stock indexes since last summer. Is the volatility over or are there more losses to come? How will the dramatic drop in oil prices affect the US economy? Will political unrest in Syria be a problem for capital markets in other parts of the world? Should we be concerned about economic weakness in China? And what about the US Presidential election?

Out of volatility, can come opportunity. In conditions like these, it is important to maintain some level of calm and a longer-term perspective to differentiate true fundamental signals from financial market noise. Bryan Knaus with Pacific Investment Management Company (PIMCO), will present on PIMCO’s global economic outlook and discuss investment strategies that can potentially provide an overall risk and reward balance in a portfolio.

You won't want to miss this discussion.  No charge for this event, but seats are limited, so don't delay!
