We are living through unprecedented times. In a few short weeks, the novel coronavirus has cost thousands of lives and destroyed wealth around the world. Investors are asking "what do we do now?" Are we headed for an extended depression as economic activity comes to a halt? Or are the policy responses – perhaps the largest in history – going to be effective? Is the $2 trillion fiscal spend (equivalent to 9.5% of GDP) and unbounded and limitless bond-buying enough? Is it too much? How should investors position portfolios for these volatile markets?
Please join us for a conversation with Nancy Davis, CIO of Quadratic Capital and Jonathan Shelon, of KFA Funds, on investing in uncertain times. During the webinar, Nancy and Jonathan will answer viewer questions.
