OD: Be Prepared: Strategies for an Inflationary Environment

Recorded on: Wednesday, January 18, 2012 1:30 PM ET


How serious is the risk of inflation today? Experts disagree, but if you are responsible for an investment portfolio, you need to understand the risks. And if your endowment has inflation-linked spending contracts, then you should be doubly concerned.
Join Vince Childers, portfolio manager of real asset strategies at AllianceBernstein, and Don Lindsay, chief investment officer, George Washington University for a discussion that will help you understand the threat of inflation and strategies for preparedness.

Presenters will present the findings of a major research study that debunks some popular misconceptions about inflation and frames the risks in a way that will help you be better prepared.

What You Will Learn

  • Gain a stronger understanding of both of the risk of inflation in today’s markets and the various tools that are available to deal with this risk.

  • Profit from the considerable experience of two senior managers in the field of endowment management.
