As the new year approaches it is the perfect time to begin reflecting on the past year and look forward to the next. At Portfolio Stewards, we are reviewing our investment strategies for the upcoming year, and checking in on their outlook for the upcoming year in order to position every portfolio for success.   We manage some of our portfolios directly but for others we hire external managers. These experts do more than just manage a portion of your portfolio.  When they are brought on, we are hiring their specific knowledge, experience and expertise. It is essential for us to maintain an open line of ongoing communication with these managers.

On the evening of January 25th at 7:00 PM, we will be conducting a virtual roundtable discussion with a group of celebrated portfolio managers in order to tap into their views about the upcoming year.

What is Outlook 2022?

Our guest panelists are plugged into financial markets and the world’s economies and industry trends.

Outlook 2022 is not a sales pitch but a roundtable featuring some great minds (both Canadian and International) discussing trends and how they will affect world economies and financial markets.  Rather than getting information second hand from our Wealth Advisors, Outlook 2022 gives you direct access to portfolio managers and experts.
