On October 5th, Janet Rilling, CFA, senior portfolio manager for the Wells Capital Management Fixed Income team, presented in Dr. David Krause's Fixed Income class at Marquette University. 

Dr. Krause commented, "Janet Rilling is one of the strongest outside speakers we bring to campus each year. She always does a great job in the classroom because she provides excellent content.  Janet has the experience to provide the students with practical real world examples of the content we are covering. I've told her before that she would be an outstanding instructor - she connects well with the students."

Dr. Krause continued, "When Janet talks about credit analysis during her visit to campus, she is always able to provide examples of current credit research that she and her team are involved with. She does such a strong job in the classroom that she allows me the opportunity to move ahead in the course syllabus."

Janet Rilling answers student quesitons
"Her presentation on credit analysis is timely for the students as they will be tackling their own fixed income credit analysis project later this semester. Janet was also able to talk about the current macro-economic environment and answered the students' questions after class about credit research, interest rates, Federal Reserve policy and other topics. I know she is among the most impressive speakers the students have seen on campus recently. We are thankful she was able to visit us again."
