HighView’s Fall Client Presentation is going Virtual

For the last handful of years, we have sent you an invite to attend a Client Presentation in early October.  This was a time to come together to share important information and education pertaining to your investment portfolios and financial lives.

Given the necessary precautions, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we still look to accomplish this, but in a means that is safe for everyone.

On Thanksgiving Monday, October 12th, we will release a video with a similar format to our previous Client Presentations. But we need your help!

Q & A with a Global Economist

The first part of our meeting will be our Chief Investment Officer, Greg Rodger, speaking directly with an Economist, David Onyett-Jeffries, from Guardian Capital.  The Global Economic landscape has been altered by the demand and supply shocks brought on by the COVID crisis. We thought this would be an ideal time to have your questions answered directly by a Global Economist.

Please submit any questions you would like us to ask them via info@highviewfin.com or by emailing any of the HighView team.

Q & A with your Global Large Cap Equity Manager

The second part of our meeting will be Loren Francis & Greg Rodger of HighView speaking with Sri Iyer & Fiona Wilson of Guardian Capital, who manage your Global Large Cap Equity Mandate.

With the COVID crisis causing unprecedented volatility around the world, we thought it would be an ideal time to hear directly from your Global Equity manager. With this said, we also want to ask them your questions!

Please submit any questions you would like us to ask Sri & Fiona via info@highviewfin.com or by emailing any of the HighView team.  Your question will be asked while using only your first name, so you know it is yours.

We look forward to sharing this new format with you, while still delivering the thought leadership and informative content you have come to expect.

Date of Release: Monday October 12th, 2020
