ABOUT THE SPEAKERS
Hans Keirstead, Ph.D., will share important information regarding the various types of vaccines. With the help of increased funding from the U.S. Department of Health and the $2 trillion CARES Act, companies like Johnson & Johnson are promising widely available vaccines early next year – much quicker than the typical five to seven-year timeline. Rapid progress in development is being made thanks in part to China’s efforts to sequence the genetic material of Sars-CoV-2. By adapting existing vaccine platforms, an effective vaccine may be available even sooner.
Caleb Silsby, CFA will talk about the market reaction to the economic impact of COVID-19. Caleb will assess what has been priced into the markets (a short recession, a long and deep recession or a credit crisis?) and the economic and market implications. Caleb will outline what can you do with your portfolio to protect yourself and what estate planning measures can protect your family.
