The world is quickly changing and business leaders heard about trends that are transforming the way we live during a Palisades Institute forum on October 3, 2019 in Rosary Hall.
Greg Singer, VP and Investment Director at Capital Group, said three major trends are the growth of cloud computing, advances in medical research, and the increase in global air travel. “Everyone is very worried about volatility in the markets right now and the risk of an upcoming recession. We see volatility likely to stay and a recession likely to happen in the next couple of years,” he said. “But at the same time, there are multi-decade trends going on and companies that are going to get through the recession to the other side and that can create attractive investments. “
Singer advises business owners to make sure their businesses can get through the stress of a recession, noting that companies with volatility and debt are particularly at risk. Singer was joined on the panel by Kathy Nalywajko, VP at Capital Group.
The aim of the Palisades Institute of Dominican College is to encourage leaders in business, government, and not-for-profit agencies to integrate the concepts of leadership, quality, and ethics to achieve long-term success.
