In times of uncertainty whether you are running a business or planning your investments, knowledge can be your most valuable asset.
You are invited to join us for our fourth annual economic outlook conference. For the first time in eight years the Federal Reserve will begin to push interest rates higher. How quickly will rates climb? What impact will they have? ? When might the economy slip into recession? When will wages begin to rise? What is the outlook for inflation? What are the risks surrounding that forecast? Our keynote speaker will provide clear and concise answers to these questions.
Last year’s event was a sellout. Be sure to book early and consider buying a table of 8 for your firm.
