PineBridge Investments Host Educational Webinar

Pension Fund Trustees and Administrators Earn Continuing Education Credit Through TEXPERS' Online Learning

TEXPERS Staff Report

On Nov. 3, TEXPERS hosted Global Macroeconomic Outlook: The Pandemic, Politics, and Policy Spur a Macro Reset, presented by PineBridge Investments.

In 2020, global geopolitical noise has become deafening, with a momentous US presidential contest and the pandemic’s ongoing toll dominating the news cycle and creating uncertainty and conjecture in the markets, says PineBridge Chief Economist Markus Schomer, who lead the presentation. With rapid-fire developments continuing to move markets in unpredictable ways, he explained how investors can make decisions with conviction.

The webinar explored:

  • How the outcome of the US election could drive a macroeconomic framework
  • What policy changes we might expect
  • Which economic indicators investors should be watching

Attendees Earn Credit

Pension fund trustees and administrators who attended the live webinar earned one hour of Investment training credit satisfying Pension Review Board of Texas' training requirements. Accountants also were able to earn one hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit for the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy. To earn the credit hour, attendees sat through the entire presentation, participated in polling questions during the session, and answered a survey after the webinar.
