Rick Reagan - "Navigating Markets in Uncertain Times"

Date: Friday, March 3rd at 7 PM ET
Venue: Catherine Cummings Theatre, 16 Lincklaen Street, Cazenovia, NY

If you're feeling a little queasy about your financial future, you're not alone. A recent survey of more than 4,000 CEOs found that 73% of them believed global economic growth will decline over the next twelve months.  The dismal news comes as we're still reeling from the 2022 bear market and with recession fears fueled by rising interest rates. But there is hope. In a program titled "Navigating Markets in Uncertain Times" presented March 3 by the Cazenovia Forum, financial expert Rick Reagan will talk about what is likely to happen and how we can prepare for it. "Despite all the negative headlines," Reagan said recently, "the US remains far and away the best spot to invest in the world."

Reagan, founder of Reagan Companies Asset Management, appears on numerous media outlets in the Syracuse area.  He has a daily segment on News Channel 9 (ABC) as their financial expert and several times a week can be heard on News Radio 570.

Reagan will look at what will happen with inflation and the Fed's response.  He will consider the odds of a recession and will talk about ways to make money while still protecting one's downside.

A departmental scholar in Economics at Potsdam College, Reagan received his MBA in Finance from Clarkson University.  In 1996 he became a Certified Financial Planner and has served as an expert financial witness in multiple Financial Industry Authority arbitration hearings and mediations since 2003.  His expert testimony has been recognized in the areas of asset allocation, distribution analysis, and Monte Carlo simulation. 

"Navigating Markets in Uncertain Times" will be presented at 7 p.m. at the Catherine Cummings Theatre, Cazenovia College. The presentation is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception at the Lincklaen House.
