“The Stock Market of 2013” will be the subject of a Milwaukee Press Club Newsmaker Luncheon to take place on Wednesday, May 1, from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The stock market has soared to record highs this year, despite a flat job market, the sequestration of the federal government, the uncertainty of Obamacare and looming crises abroad, including Cyprus, Iran, the West Bank and Korea.
The Newsmaker Luncheon will feature investment experts Robert Chernow and William Delwiche.
Chernow is a vice president and investment officer with RBC Wealth Management in Milwaukee. He and his business partner, Linda Cowan, have $450 million under management. Chernow also is vice chair of the 11,000-member World Future Society and a noted futurist who predicted the S&L collapse and the sub-prime crisis (in 2006).
Delwiche is first vice president and investment strategist at Robert W. Baird & Co. Inc.’s Investment Policy Committee. Before joining Baird in 1999, he worked as a researcher at the Committee for Economic Development, a Washington, D.C., pro-business think tank.
The investment experts will answer question posed by a panel of journalists, including BizTimes reporter Molly Newman. The discussion will be moderated by BizTimes executive editor Steve Jagler.
The public is invited to attend the Newsmaker Luncheon, which will take place at the Newsroom Pub in downtown Milwaukee at 137 E. Wells St.
