Professtional Development Session I

Topic:  Hot Topics in Financial Risk Management: Changing the Game
Presenter: 
Amanda Breslin, CFA, CTP; Executive Director, Treasury Advisory, Chatham Financial and Sid Basu, CFA, CPA; Manager, Risk Management Advisory, Chatham Financial
*CPE Details

Hedging isn’t a new topic, but it does have a number of new twists. After prolonged near-zero rates, many companies are revisiting interest rate risk for the first time post-crisis after a more sustained climate of Fed rate hikes. Meanwhile, LIBOR replacement is being solidified, impacting loans and hedges alike. And if market changes weren’t impactful enough, changes in accounting standards have also played a role in the economic strategies being employed by companies. This session will focus on how companies have been navigating the current landscape of financial risk hedging.

Professional Development Session II

Topic: ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) Investing
Presenter:
 Matthew Burnett, Senior Portfolio Advisor, Financial Advisor
*CPE Details

Many of us have heard of ESG investing but few understand what it means and why it should be considered. ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance. There is growing evidence that suggests that ESG factors, when integrated into investment analysis and portfolio construction, may offer investors potential long-term performance advantages.  We’ll discuss the history of ESG strategies, how they’ve evolved and why this is such a prevalent topic in today’s society.
