Today, Wednesday April 15, 2020, Tim Ng joined Dr. David Krause and the AIM Class of 2021 via a virtual meeting connection and provided an economic update. He addressed the current market environment after the federal government’s recent massive fiscal and monetary stimulus.

He also provided meaningful insights about the market relative to previous ‘black swan’ events and provided comments about the potential setup of some ‘cheap asset’ buys. While indicating that the market is likely still to have wide fluctuations, Tim indicated that there are attractive opportunities that will avail themselves – especially before the COVID-19 all-clear has been given. He liked US equities as an asset class above all others.

Dr. Krause commented, “Tim did a marvelous job and the students had many questions – we stopped after fifty minutes, but many of us stayed online for much of the next hour. He covered a lot of ground, but provided enough detail to allow the students to put the current situation into context. I also like how he discussed all asset classes and was able to talk about recommendations for asset allocations that pension funds, endowments and foundations are implementing.
