Economic Outlook for 2014

Dr. Stephen Wood, a financial analyst often quoted by Bloomberg News, captivated CIANJ’s Financial Decision Makers Roundtable with his smart, practical and very entertaining perspectives on the national and global markets.

Wood, who is a chief market strategist for Russell Investments, predicted it will be the last quarter of 2015 before the Federal Reserve even considers raising interest rates.

In an hour-long discussion, moderated by Nicholas Jalowski, a managing director at Cambridge Financial Services, Wood gave insights on Janet Yellen, the new chair of the Fed board; inflation, central banks, and macroeconomics – to name a few of the topics.

The audience response to Wood was so overwhelming that CIANJ hopes to make his presentations a regular part of the Financial Decision Makers programming.
