Meet The Money Managers 2021 Recap

On March 23rd, The Musuneggi Financial Group hosted their yearly Meet the Money Managers event. Held virtually for 2021, the webinar invited industry professionals and current Musuneggi Financial Group clients to get to know the managers who handle their investments, their strategies for investing, and their perspectives on the future. Moderator Christopher Musuneggi was joined by Burl East of American Assets Capital Management and Josh Iofgren with MetLife Investment Management.

Christopher led a Q&A with Burl and Josh, with topics ranging from the effects of the recent Presidential election and change in administration on the economy, how to invest in real estate in a challenging commercial market, and, of course, the impact of COVID-19 on their portfolios over the past year. They provided insight on how they are navigating the unusual economic environment of the past year, and how to successfully invest in an uncertain market.
We hope that the event was informative and helpful to our clients, and that by making their money managers accessible for an evening, they can glean a greater understanding of and deeper trust in the day-to-day handling of their investments. If you missed the event and want to learn more about current market conditions, contact one of our associates today!

Special thanks to Dunham & Associates for their help in putting together this program, and for their continued support of The Musuneggi Financial Group.
