Nicholas Jalowski, Managing Director of Cambridge Financial Services, LLC, interviewed economist Dr. Stephen Wood for the third annual Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey’s Economic Update. Dr. Wood is chief market strategist North America for Russell Investments and acts as one of its external voices for the economy, capital markets, portfolio strategies and investor behavior. Dr. Wood appears on CNBC, BBC, Fox Business Network, Bloomberg TV, and PBS and is often quoted in worldwide publications.
According to Nick, “Dr. Stephen Wood has the tremendous ability to break down complex economic issues into understandable concepts for the lay person. The program is presented in a casual format where Dr. Wood and I basically have a conversation on stage, with me asking him questions on the economy and investments. The back and forth dialogue is fun, genuine, and gives Dr. Wood the opportunity to go into detail on topics that are of interest to the CIANJ audience. “
Dr. Wood touched on what will happen with oil and other commodities, possible moves by the Federal Reserve, the affect of China on the world economy, risk versus opportunities in credit defaults, expectations for the European Union and where to place your investment best in the coming year.
“This is not your typical economic presentation,” says Nick . “It is entertaining as well as informative, and if you have never seen Dr. Wood in action, I suggest you make it a priority if CIANJ offers this presentation again next year!”
In addition to his duties at Cambridge Financial Services, LLC, Nick Jalowski is a member of CIANJ’s Financial Decision Makers Roundtable and its CEO II Roundtable.
