Given the historically low interest rate environment ushered in by the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy response to the 2020 COVID-induced recession, investors are now looking at flat to negative real returns from an asset class that has been a backbone of portfolios for decades.

Join us to hear answers to these questions, and more!

  1. Strategies for strategic asset allocation decisions in low bond yield environment

  3. How to discuss risk and return with clients of potential asset allocation changes
