Our webinar host is Liz Ann Sonders, Chief Investment Strategist for Charles Schwab, who will give us market recap for 2020 and outlook for 2021. Liz Ann Sonders has a range of investment strategy responsibilities reaching from market and economic analysis to investor education, all focused on the individual investor. Her outlook for 2021 forecasts better days ahead, but when? 

  • Stocks closing out 2020 having crossed the COVID chasm; but the economy has more rough terrain to traverse.
  • Vaccines represent the light at the end of the tunnel; but we will enter 2021 still in the tunnel.
  • The outlook for 2021 looks sunnier; but frothy sentiment near-term remains a risk.
Join our one-hour webinar to hear Liz Ann discuss these topics and more. She will also answer your questions!
