How should our investment strategy change in a rising rate environment? Higher interest rates represent an opportunity for public entities to generate greater interest income for their communities. But with interest rates having been so low for so long, rising market rates are unfamiliar and can present risks. This session will review current economic and market conditions and offer strategies to meet your investment goals.

Learning Objectives: Participants completing this session will be able to:
1. Acquire an understanding of the current economic and market conditions
2. Learn how investment planning can help reduce risks 
3. Gain insight into various investment strategies.
