2017 Midyear Outlook Invite-Brokerage

CONFERENCE CALL PRESENTERS:

MIDYEAR ECONOMIC UPDATE WITH U.S. EQUITY INDICES AT NEAR-RECORD HIGHS, SHOULD INVESTORS BE WATCHING THEIR PORTFOLIO EXPOSURES TO DOMESTIC STOCKS?

SCOTT COLBERT, CFA Commerce Trust Company Chief Economist and Director of Fixed Income

CLIENT CONFERENCE CALL - JULY 18, 2017 Steady domestic employment growth, healthy U.S. credit markets, a robust housing market and continued low inflation have pushed business and consumer confidence to their highest levels in a decade. Yet uneasiness prevails with the current administration’s failure to reach legislative goals on healthcare, tax reform, deregulation, and foreign trade policy. Also in the economic mix are the Federal Reserve’s course to continue raising Central Bank interest rates, geopolitical risks worldwide, and improving prospects for global growth. All of these factors make for an interesting financial drama to unfold. Get a handle on what’s to come in the second half of the year. Commerce Trust Company’s Chief Economist Scott Colbert, CFA, Chief Investment Strategist Joe Williams, CFA, and Director of Portfolio Management Christie Cody, CFA, CFP, sort out the key influencing forces for all interested clients and their guests.
