A Roadmap for Fixed Income Investing in a Pandemic Economy
Speaker: Eddy Vataru, Portfolio Manager of the Osterweis Total Return Fund
Covid-19 has thrown a wrench in all risk markets in 2020, forcing asset managers to look deeper in their playbooks to manage their risk while seeking investment opportunities. Monumental fiscal and monetary stimulus programs have buoyed markets but are not themselves curative of the underlying cause of the economic shutdown. Join us in July when Eddy Vataru helps navigate these turbulent condition.

Join us for our August meeting to hear how FPA members and the East Bay Community Foundation can continue to support our clients’ philanthropic needs and support our community.
