Generating Income for Investment Clients During Market Volatility
How do you generate income for your clients in a volatile market that seems to be characterized by persistently low yields? This has been a challenge for asset managers and advisors in the past, but it now appears to be more daunting than ever. Geopolitical instability, stretched inventories, supply chain shutdowns, and overall market volatility has contributed to the highest rate of inflation in 40 years. What’s more, beyond the looming impact of COVID-19, rollercoaster stock market conditions all seem to suggest that volatility is here to stay for some time.
This webinar will feature a panel that examines how investment managers and advisors navigate this paradigm.
Webinar Participants Will Learn:
- How investment managers and advisors deliver income to their clients—whether it be from traditional approaches or alternative strategies.
- How these panelists are navigating roller-coaster market conditions, and the risks worth taking and those worth avoiding.
