Robert R. Johnson, Ph.D., President and CEO of The American College of Financial Services, will be the keynote speaker at La Salle University’s 17th annual Economic Outlook forum on Tuesday, January 23, 2018, at noon at the Union League of Philadelphia. The 2018 Economic Outlook is presented by Safeguard Scientifics.
“As the author of Invest with the Fed and Strategic Value Investing, I will address investing in an expected rising interest rate environment,” said Johnson. “Based on over 25 years of research, I will demonstrate which asset classes and sectors have prospered and which have languished when rates have risen and when rates have fallen. My goal is to show how to maximize your long-term returns and reduce your risk in alternative interest rate environments.”
