A complimentary event for investment professionals

This year's mix of volatility and prolonged uncertainty underscores the importance of building a resilient core. As investors look to prepare portfolios for 2021, how could more strategic building blocks offer protection from the unforeseen without sacrificing access to opportunity?

Join us to explore the range of innovative, low-cost strategies designed to meet clients' specific investment goals—from ESG to factors, sectors, and beyond.

Craig Lazzara, CFA, Global Head of Index Investment Strategy at S&P DJI, will discuss the effectiveness of indexing in building a stable core, and Sam Stovall, CFP, Chief Investment Strategist at CFRA, will share his post-election equity outlook for North America.

Industry experts will also explore:
