2017 Economic Outlook: Second Quarter
Featuring Eric Weston from J.P. Morgan

Thursday, June 22, 2017 · 2:00pm - 3:00pm (ET)


About the webinar:

After months of steady gains going back to last November, markets seem to have cooled somewhat in the last two months. Weak first-quarter GDP growth has raised concerns, even as employment figures point to a strong economy. Investors are also keeping a close eye on Washington, where uncertainty – with respect to both policy and politics – appears to be on the rise.

How will your endowment fare in this environment? What can you do to protect its value?
Find out by joining SECF on Thursday, June 22, at 2:00pm for our 2nd Quarter Economic Outlook Webinar. We’ll be joined by Eric Weston from J.P. Morgan, who will provide an update on economic performance and look at what’s to come in the weeks and months ahead.
