Sticking to the Fundamentals During a Time of Crisis
Level 1 Sponsors:
The C.D. Howe Institute invites you to join us on May 13th for a webinar with Bert Clark, the Chief Executive Officer of Investment Management Corporation of Ontario (IMCO). The combined impact of COVID-19, the public health responses by governments around the world, and unprecedented fiscal and monetary policy interventions have resulted in an extremely complex investment environment. This market turmoil has reinforced the importance of “getting the big things right” when it comes to investing.
Clark will discuss why investors need to remain focused on fundamental priorities, in order to sustain performance and preserve client portfolios in these challenging economic conditions.
C.D. Howe Institute events and webinars are open to members and their guests.
