Multiple factors are responsible for the heightened volatility in the global markets. Intensified talks surrounding the China trade war are at the forefront with an extended US bull market chugging into mature phase. As if that’s not enough, Americans navigated a new tax plan (TCJA) in 2018 while Illinois residents are set to see the most dramatic tax code reform in a generation. The goal of this presentation is to convey the necessary economic and market information to enhance your knowledge and improve your financial plan.

Lunch: A plated lunch will be available immediately following the presentation.  The menu choices include:  pasta, salads, and various sandwiches for $14/person including beverage, service charge and sales tax.
