The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a significant amount of volatility in capital markets. While the economic recovery is underway, investors are understandably feeling a bit uncertain about the state of the markets and how recent events might impact their wealth management strategy.

On Monday, June 29th at 1:00 PM ET, we will be holding a webinar to update clients on the state of capital markets and offer our perspective on retirement planning in the wake of the COVID crisis. Specifically, we will discuss:

    • How COVID-19 has influenced consumer finances
    • The economic impact—both in the U.S. and abroad—of social distancing
    • The effects of COVID-19 on GDP, and what to expect going forward
    • Wealth management perspectives for this challenging time.
