Event description

Description

2018 has been a bumpy ride for investors. We saw a market correction in February of this year and we are coming off the worst month for the S&P 500 in 7 years. Despite all that market noise, we still see strong growth data coming from the U.S.

How should you position your portfolio going forward? Should you be looking to offload or increase your position in equities? What is 2019 going to look like for the markets?

Join Calvin, Kenneth, Freddy and Amanda (Moderator) as they discuss equities as an asset class, how you can look to include it in your portfolio by diversifying across sectors and geoprahic regions. They will also do a look back in 2018 of how markets have performed and give you their 2019 equity market outlook.

Doors will open at 6:45pm.
