Recording Part 1 (Presentation)

Recording Part II: Q&A

Each winter we invite individuals and nonprofits that entrust us with charitable funds to review the previous year’s fund investment performance and provide a forecast of the coming financial markets.

On March 1, 2018, in addition to a look back at 2017 and a forecast of the 2018 markets, we shared the benefits of our move from an independent consulting model to an Outsourced Chief Investment Officer model (OCIO). Then we introduced the new investment advisor we selected to offer these services, Graystone Consulting. Graystone, an independent business unit of Morgan Stanley, is one of the industry’s premier investment consulting businesses. If you were unable to attend, you may review the presentation and listen to a recording.
