Ten years ago, the modern financial system experienced a global crisis that put it on the brink of collapse. Surveys suggest that most people today don’t understand, or agree on, what caused it. Even among investment professionals, opinions vary wildly. Nine years into the ensuing economic recovery, the markets are again showing signs of fatigue. Are we headed for a garden-variety recession that might give way to a rebirth of growth, or is something more ominous on the horizon? In this live webinar, Ron Rimkus, CFA, applies his “5-points” technique to a critical analysis of the Global Financial Crisis of 2008. He also examines the response of policymakers and considers the likelihood that another crisis may be brewing.

This is the archived version of a live webinar that took place 23 August 2018.
