Chambers to host annual North Shore Economic Outlook breakfast April 28
The economy and markets have seen significant volatility and uncertainty to start the new year. To provide insight for local business owners and managers, the Northbrook, Glenview, and Deerfield-Bannockburn-Riverwoods Chambers will present the annual North Shore Economic Outlook Breakfast on Thursday, April 28, in Northbrook.
Jason Turner, Chief Investment Strategist for Wintrust Wealth Management, will review the factors driving economic results for 2021 and the reaction of markets this year.
Turner's presentation, "Economic and Market Perspective for 2022 and Beyond," will discern the key conditions shaping the economy, including geopolitical issues, inflationary pressures, employment market shortages, and prospects for economic growth. Attendees will gain a greater perspective of the factors driving the economy, understand the reaction of markets to the economic environment, and recognize the risks to a robust recovery.

As the Head of Multi-Asset Strategy, he is responsible for portfolio strategy, asset allocation, and for overseeing the firm's manager due diligence and selection efforts.
