Rate Quake: Retirement investing in a rising-interest-rate environment
If you’ll be in New York on Sept. 16, you’re invited to an evening of cocktails & conversation to discuss what interest-rate hikes mean for those saving and investing for retirement. Andrea Coombes, whose work regularly appears in MarketWatch and The Wall Street Journal, will moderate a discussion with Michael Falk, Focus Consulting Group; Joseph Jennings, Jr., PNC Wealth Management; & Kathy Jones, Schwab Center for Financial Research. The event is free & open to the public, but space is limited & reservations are required. To RSVP for this event, email MarketWatchEvent@wsj.com.
