New York, NY (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
Some of the best industry practitioners will deliver inspiring and practical presentations on topics such as equities, fixed income, preferred stocks, REITs, MLPs, and options premia at NYSSA’s High Income Strategies in a Challenging Interest-Rate Environment on October 1, 2013.
Individual and institutional investors crave the benefits of predictable income production from their investments. In an environment where interest rates are rising from their zero-rate levels of the recent past and dividend growth is keyed to uncertain earnings forecasts, the projection of portfolio income is more challenging than ever.
This program will inform attendees about income producing vehicles that can benefit them and their clients, risks associated with these investments, and the appropriate use of them in different types of investment accounts. The conference also provides the opportunity to engage with other participants and the speakers to deepen professional networks. Students focused on an investment management career can also gain exposure to ideas not frequently addressed in the classroom.
Each attendee will receive a free copy of Mebane Faber’s book "Shareholder Yield: A Better Approach to Dividend Investing."
Speakers at this program include:
- Robert Amodeo, CFA, Portfolio Manager, Western Asset Management Company
- Mebane T. Faber, CAIA, CMT, Portfolio Manager, Cambria Investment Management
- Martin Fridson, CFA, CEO, FridsonVision LLC
- Sara Grillo, CFA, Grillo Investment Management
- Richard Lehmann, Founder and President, Income Securities Advisors, Inc.
- Larry Miller, President and CEO, StoneMor Partners L.P.
- Jim O'Shaughnessy, Chairman, CEO, and CIO, O’Shaughnessy Asset Management (OSAM)
- Peter Vanderlee, CFA, Managing Director, Portfolio Manager, ClearBridge Investments
High Income Strategies in a Challenging Interest-Rate Environment will be held on October 1, 2013 from 8:15 a.m.–3:15 p.m. at NYSSA Conference Center, 1540 Broadway, Suite 1010, New York, NY 10036.
