Geopolitical Update with Former U.S. Ambassador: John Emerson (Webinar)
Join us for an intimate and insightful conversation with John Emerson, former United States ambassador to the Federal Republic of Germany and Vice Chairman of Capital Group International, as he touches on the current and future geo-political landscape with Jane Leung, CFA, Head of Investment Solutions and President at SVB Investment Services Inc.

It is hard to turn on the T.V., pick up the newspaper, or look at social media without seeing something about Russia, Ukraine, tensions in Asia, sanctions, gas, oil, inflation, and more. Amidst the noise and much misinformation, it is hard to know how the Russian invasion of Ukraine will continue to impact the world, or how the tension between Taiwan and China will affect the globe. And, the US will have just completed mid-term elections so the conversation will include sifting through possible implications of those results along with world events and the ensuing repercussions to our financial markets and more.

This event is offered in partnership with Capital Group. The webinar is NOT being recorded - no replay will be available.
