BRIEFING: The Perfect Storm: A 1998 Redux

This month’s live intelligence briefing puts your worries to rest, showing you what the real threats in the markets are and how to protect your wealth. Specifically, you'll learn about the foreboding similarities between today’s market and the global financial system right before Long Term Capital Management collapsed in 1998. Recall, Jim was lead counsel for LTCM. He negotiated the firm’s bailout in time to save the financial system. “Few people knew that summer in ‘98 that we were a day, if not a few hours away from a total financial collapse” he explains. Now, Jim sees similar threats that could strike today’s financial system such as the Russian ruble’s swan dive and dollar-denominated emerging market debt in a strong dollar world. He fears that these two threats and others could combine to create the crisis we’ve been preparing for. Listen to this month’s live briefing to get ahead of the curve and protect yourself.
