Ed Kerschner, CFA, Chief Investment Strategist for Citi Global Wealth Management, will discuss Thematic Investing and be the keynote speaker at our 2008 Charter Award Ceremony Luncheon. This is a CE Credit Event.
Institutional Investor magazine has called Mr. Kerschner "one of the deans of thematic investing." As Mr. Kerschner explains it, thematic investing analyzes how demographic, technological and political trends will affect financial markets, and identifies market sectors and individual securities that will benefit. The main topics of his presentation will focus on:
- The 2008 election and The End of the Populist Pause - implications for energy policy and healthcare
- Investing Implications of a Changing Climate - companies, industries, and countries that seem well positioned to benefit from climate trends
- Global Infrastructure - opportunities for the builders, owners and operators of infrastructure assets
