Investor Education Dinner
Annually we gather members of the Altavista community for dinner and educational presentations. It is an enjoyable and informative evening with pertinent topics, dinner and drinks. Previous years have included discussions on the role of a community foundation, policies driving the global markets, the market and economic outlook, portfolio strategies, the use of alternatives in your portfolio, and tax updates from local CPAs. This fall we are excited to host segments on tangible asset management and political analysis of the markets.
