Please join us for our
annual New Charterholder Event, where we will recognize everyone that has
recently been granted their CFA Charter. Attaining the Charter is
the culmination of many hours of study and effort, and is definitely an
achievement worth celebrating.
Our speaker at the event is Olga
Bitel, the Economist at William Blair Investment Management in
Chicago. Olga will be providing an update on the global economy, a
topic she researches and writes about frequently in her role as Economist for
William Blair. The talk should be especially timely as we enter a
period featuring a U.S. election and the all-important holiday shopping season.
