    Before It’s Too Late: Using Lumber and Gold To Actively Manage Stocks and Bonds

    Jun 14, 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM (PT)

    Michael A. Gayed authored five award-winning white papers on stock market anomalies from 2014 to 2020, one of which is the 2015 Founders Award study titled “Lumber: Worth Its Weight in Gold Offense and Defense in Active Portfolio Management.” His paper documents how Lumber and Gold can be used as signals for managing investment portfolios. This eye-opening research focuses on the predictive power of two seemingly unrelated commodities which provide important information on the economic cycle, and risk-seeking behavior in various assets. His work has important implications for both asset allocators and active managers.

    WR Speaker Series: Infrastructure Investing with Cantor Fitzgerald

    Jun 15, 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM (PT)

    Private infrastructure is expected to overtake real estate as the largest real asset class by 2026.

    Join us to learn about infrastructure’s potential investment benefits, three global megatrends expected to shape our future markets, and Cantor Fitzgerald Sustainable Infrastructure Fund, a continuously offered, closed-end interval fund focused primarily on private infrastructure.


    GLOBAL OPPORTUNITY Infrastructure improves living standards and supports economic development. Global growth dynamics continue to drive public and private investment in infrastructure pointing to opportunities in areas such as the development and modernization of roads, power networks, water systems, and telecommunication networks..

    INCREASING DEMAND The fundamental drivers of infrastructure investment are strong – population growth, climate change, energy transition, urbanization, and digital connectivity. It is estimated that trillions of dollars of investment will be required to meet the world’s infrastructure requirements over the coming decades.2

    ATTRACTIVE HISTORICAL RETURNS Infrastructure has historically delivered attractive total returns, a high level of current income, and portfolio diversification benefits due to having a low correlation to traditional securities.
