Topic: Geopolitical Implications

Program Description:
International and domestic relationships across the world are constantly evolving, and recent events in Ukraine, Syria, Russia, and Brazil are just some of the examples that can threaten even the best investment thesis. That said, such activities may also hold investment opportunity, either from companies poised to benefit from increased geopolitical risk or valuation prospects upon news of these events. Join us on Friday, February 21 as we discuss investment ideas stemming from changing geopolitical situations.

The Investment Exchange Forum is a stock-picking meeting of 10-15 CFA Chicago members. Each meeting features actionable ideas by presenting volunteers and a lively discussion of the topic at hand. The IEF is both an opportunity to learn how others present investment ideas concisely and a chance to practice stock pitches. In order to keep the quality of the stock picks as high as possible, we encourage attendance by members who are actively involved in investment management.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring actionable ideas to the forum for presentation.

Attendance will be limited to 15 members - first-come, first-served. Please remember to bring your own lunch.
