A Building Expertise Web Conference - "Ignoring the Noise: Investing in a Volatile Environment"

Web Presentation

December 2003 |

As many employees are asking questions about the recent performance of the U.S. equity market, the basis of their inquiries is often concern regarding whether they have selected investment strategies which can withstand the market's volatility.

Have certain asset classes been outperforming others despite U.S. stock market instability? How diversified should investment choices be in light of savings goals? How does one make appropriate retirement or mutual fund investment decisions when there are a myriad of alternatives from which to choose? This web conference addressed these issues and other important questions.

Intended primarily for employee benefits and human resources professionals, this web conference was presented by Scott Budde, managing director of TIAA-CREF Investment Management, Inc., and moderated by TIAA-CREF Institute assistant director of education, Raymond Schmierer. This program was useful to those who need a better understanding of market volatility relative to longer term U.S. stock market performance data, and who want an overview of equity returns over different equity asset classes. This presentation also provided a basic outline of strategies which can be employed to simplify the process of selecting equity-based investments.

This web conference has been approved for one hour of continuing education (CE) credit toward recertification for the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) and Senior Professional (SPHR) designations awarded by the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM).
