Andrew Hammond, CFP® will moderate FEI-Boston’s March 2019 Executive Event: What Did We Learn in 10 Years & Where Do We Go From Here?

Andrew Hammond, CFP®Andrew Hammond, Partner & Wealth Advisor at AAFCPAs Wealth Management, will moderate a seasoned panel of peer investment strategists discussing what we should have learned since the recession of 2008-2009, and how the equity community and government is working to minimize the risk of this happening again.
The Dow plunged 54% in 18 months between 2008 and 2009, the largest since the Great Depression of 1929.  We have come a long way since the Federal Reserve and the Treasury had to step in and save the banking system from going under. Panelists will take a look back at the decade following the financial meltdown — and will discuss current trends and sign posts that may indicate which direction the market will go.

Andy will facilitate dialogue on:

  • Whether the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and § 619 (the Volcker Rule) make us more secure.
  • Market risks related to central banks, low interest rates, and massive global debt levels.
  • Risks associated with passive investing.
  • The impact China tariffs may have on the global economy.
  • Quant driven or computer driven algorithms, and the risks—such as the “Flash Crash” of May 2010—of money being managed by machines.
  • The impact artificial intelligence (AI) may have on the global workforce, and if the market has priced for this.
  • Whether the record low market performance in the fourth quarter of 2018 indicates a risk of recession.
  • Where the US stands in the current business cycle.
  • And, what keeps them awake at night!

The panel also looks forward to answering questions from the audience of FEI-Boston!
When: Thursday, March 14, 2019 | 7:00AM – 9:00AM
