Vault Series: Gov't Policy Tailwinds through 2020 - Canceled

How Government Policy Drives Stock Market Returns
 
Hosted by: Distinguished Speaker Series Advisory Group

Actions in Washington D.C. can be a powerful leading indicator for investment returns. By identifying big changes in government policy, investors can uncover "policy alpha" opportunities at the sector down to the individual security level. Policy catalysts also yield uncorrelated return opportunities outside of the economic cycle. Ben Phillips, CFA, chief investment officer of EventShares, will discuss the top 5 sectors with government policy tailwinds through 2020.
