A Conversation on Currencies

Join Verus’ Ian Toner and Brown Brothers Harriman’s Marc Chandler as they unpack the current state of the currency markets, and discuss implications for managing currency risk.  

First Marc will present, Making Sense of the Dollar:  Politics, Economics, and Fed Policy in the Trump Era.  Ian will then discuss, “The Conscious Currency Framework: A New Approach to Understanding The Impact Of Currency Markets On Your Total Portfolio.”  The two will then join on stage for a moderated, audience Q&A.

A prolific writer and speaker, Chandler's essays have been published in the Financial Times, Barron's, Euromoney, Corporate Finance, and Foreign Affairs.
