Topic: Investments for Higher Interest Rates

Program Description:
Investments for Higher Interest Rates
The U.S. Federal Reserve has kept interest rates at a historically low level for several years, but in recent meetings has discussed tapering its bond buying program. While timing of such a decision remains uncertain, it seems likely that interest rates will rise in the near- to medium-term, leading to many investment implications across the asset class spectrum. Join us on Fri., Dec. 20, 2013 to discuss ideas for investing in a rising interest-rate environment.

The Investment Exchange Forum is a stock-picking meeting of 10-15 CFA Chicago members. Each meeting features actionable ideas by presenting volunteers and a lively discussion of the topic at hand. The IEF is both an opportunity to learn how others present investment ideas concisely and a chance to practice stock pitches. In order to keep the quality of the stock picks as high as possible, we encourage attendance by members who are actively involved in investment management.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring actionable ideas to the forum for presentation.

Attendance will be limited to 15 members - first-come, first-served. Please remember to bring your own lunch.
