Topic: Prepared for Another Lost Decade? A Secular and Cyclical Outlook for Stocks, Bonds and Inflation
Speaker: Tom J. Kopas, Principal and Portfolio Manager, Pring Turner Capital Group
Now that you have endured the first decade of the 21st century—indeed the “Lost Decade”—what is in store for the next 10 years? Find out why our guest speaker believes investors should prepare for another “lost decade” for stocks and what market benchmarks will look like when we have reached the end of the current secular bear market. Are U.S. Treasury bonds really a safe-haven asset? Are we approaching an important long-term turning point for interest rates and inflation? How will a trend change affect bond funds? Why is understanding the business cycle more critical than ever for investors? In this presentation, Tom Kopas will discuss what asset allocation decisions will bring investors safely through this cycle.
