Continuing our exciting Webinar Series, we have two to announce
April 4 - On Resource Constraints w/ SFM Board Member Nick Silver
Nick Silver recently co-authored the study “Resource Constraints: Sharing a Finite World. Implications of Limits to Growth for the Actuarial Profession”. In this webinar Nick will present the major findings of the report. He will discuss whether the global economy is facing resource constraints, if it is what effects this might have on financial markets, and in particular what this would mean for economic growth. He will then discuss some of the implications for institutional investment and the impact on a savings vehicle such as a pension fund.
