TC Wealth Partners, a Chicago-area RIA, will host Rick Mattoon, Senior Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, at the firm’s annual conference on September 25, 2019. Mattoon will specifically address current domestic economic dynamics, the structure of the Trump tax plan, and the specific economic issues facing Illinois.

“We’re excited to have Rick Mattoon at our annual conference,” says Bill Giffin, CEO of TC Wealth Partners. “Rick brings a quantitative approach to all the confusing market signals. His expertise in the Illinois economy is especially timely.”

Whether it’s a story about a 400-point drop in the Dow Jones, the trade war with China, or the inverted yield curve and its correlation to recessions, the news can evoke anxiety in investors.

“With social media, smart phones, Apple watches, and Fit Bits, we live a connected existence with no off switch,” says Giffin. “Given the recent uncertainty about the future of the economy, we thought it was the perfect time to bring back Rick Mattoon.

“He will bring his expertise to bear not only on the national economy but also on what’s happening in Illinois since last year’s election.”

In addition to Mattoon, Tom Margulis, co-Founder and Principal of Conway Investment Research, will discuss how the market typically behaves in election years.
