Event description

Description

We started the year coming off a great 2017 and investors were expecting the same for 2018. What we have seen however has been a turbulent 2018 with rising interest rates in the U.S, threats of a global trade war, and a slowdown of growth in China. We had the market correction at the start of this year and a volatile October which saw the S&P 500 and DJIA losing all gains made this year.

Join Mathew, Freddy, and Phillip (Moderator) in a panel discussion as they take a look back at how the different asset classes have performed in 2018 and sharing their outlook/tips for investors in the new year!

Doors will open at 6:45pm.
