Policy Today: Making Sense of Political, Economic Upheaval
The only constant in politics and economics today is change. From establishment-busting elections to upheaval in the workforce, the world is a much different place than it was just a few decades ago. Today's guest, Ian Toner, analyzes these changes for a living. Mr. Toner serves as Chief Investment Officer at Verus Investments, which offers research-driven advice to its clients (who include educational and charitable organizations, corporate, multi-employer and public defined benefit plans, hospitals and insurance providers) on more than $330 billion in assets. Mr. Toner, who will be the Guest Speaker at our upcoming Annual Dinner in Bellevue this May 23, gives his thoughts on the recent American and French elections, Brexit, the future of trade agreements, and more.
