Event Description

Perspective on a Pandemic: Investing and COVID-19
A Live "Town Hall" Zoom Event: Thursday, April 9, 2:00 p.m.

COVID-19 has injected fear into financial markets as investors worry that this urgent health emergency will cripple World GDP growth and lead to mass unemployment and bankruptcies. We have seen numerous disasters, wars and stock market crashes over the last century and there are valuable lessons that we can take from past financial episodes. In this webinar, Jason Hsu, Founder and CIO of Rayliant Global Advisors, provides perspective on the current pandemic including the macroeconomic consequences, effects on financial markets and considerations for investors during these turbulent times.

Join us on your phone or laptop for this live Zoom meeting. Participants will have the opportunity to question the speaker directly in this "Town Hall" style event. Jason Hsu 19.jpg
