Please join Mercer’s Amy Ridge, Partner, Alternatives, and Casey Wamsley, Senior Investment Consultant for a lively discussion on:

“The Year of the Dragon- Unraveling the markets and alternative investments as we look into 2024”

The Dragon, in most traditions, symbolizes the embodiment of chaos and untamed nature. In Asia, the Dragon symbolizes authority, power, wisdom, and hidden knowledge. As we look into 2024, The Year of the Dragon, what will the markets bring to investors and how should investors be preparing to navigate investment portfolios. Mercer will bring their views on the market environment of how we got here and what may be in store as we look ahead. Mercer will also explore the world of alternative investments and discuss how investors can prepare portfolios as they look to navigate the markets ahead.
