Showcase speaker: Ron Carson, "The New Meaningful Measure: Proving the Value of Relationship"

Description

Advisors have long held onto a simple metric for defining their worth in a client’s eyes (rate of return, performance, asset growth, etc.). But, are your clients measuring you in more ways than one? They are today. In this keynote presentation, Ron Carson, CEO and founder of Carson Group, will expose the intangible value advisors provide to their clients and illustrate how advisors can bring this invisible value to the forefront of the client conversation. Demonstrating value beyond a doubt is the new standard, and with the advent of interactive technology, Carson will explain what the modern-day consumer expects, why it’s changing investor behavior, and how this will influence the profession forever.

Fixed income and the 2019 U.S. interest rate outlook: What bond investors should know

Description

The Federal Reserve continues to methodically increase the Fed Funds rate and unwind its balance sheet, making the short end of the yield curve extremely attractive. And yet, there has been little to no meaningful increase in yields on the long end. Does the flattening yield curve cause the Fed to pause? In addition to monetary policy and the Central Banks, LIBOR—the world’s most common reference interest rate—is being replaced after 2021. Come hear our take on where interest rates may be heading, whether a flattening yield curve is signaling an inversion, what the economic data tells investors, and what investors should know about SOFR and the transition away from LIBOR.
