Anatomy of a recession: What to look for  and where we’re headed

Although the U.S. stock market and economy are in the midst of an expansion, it’s important for advisors to be aware of potential catalysts that may trigger a downturn.  Do higher wages and near full employment pose risks to corporate earnings? What do indicators like high-yield spreads tell us about the maturity of the business cycle? How does the current European expansion compare in terms of growth and duration?

We’re pleased to offer financial advisors an opportunity to get answers to those questions and earn continuing education credit at the same time. Join us at an upcoming live webinar with Jeff Schulze, CFA®, Investment Strategist, ClearBridge Investments on Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2018. Jeff is a regular contributor on CNBC and currently oversees capital market and economic research for ClearBridge, a leading global equity manager with more than $123B AUM.

In this webinar, Jeff will explain how he assesses the probability of recession from the perspective of 12 risk indicators. He’ll also explain why the signals serve as effective warning signs why the consumer serves as an important component in formulating his outlook.
