New Investment Opportunities in this Emerging Higher Interest-Rate Environment

A virtual presentation
Monday, December 12th, 2022 | 4:00 p.m.


After last week’s well-received “guest post” by team member Avril McAmmond, stay tuned for perhaps a more regular posting and musings from her.


For our pre-holiday seminar, I’m doing something a little different: I’ve got two presenters who will each do a 20 minute presentation. For the first time in many years, with elevated interest rates that are expected to remain higher for longer, there are a lot of fixed income, capital safe products to invest in, that don’t have the ups and downs of the stock market, while providing yields that haven’t been available for at least a decade.


So hoping you can join, we will have all the bugs sorted out on this one: promise!

Might be a little early, but time to get a Christmas tree, and set up the decorations outside.


Have a great weekend!
