We were pleased to offer two presenters for our October lunch hour chapter meeting. BlackRock and iShares provided us with Dominic Maister, Director of iShares ETF due diligence and Rene Casis, Director of their Equity Smart Beta group.
Both presenters brought a technical approach. Dominic provided insight and advice on ETF trading, and navigating the different ETF features in the marketplace. Mr. Casis provided us with his research and findings of Factor Investing and his firm's work with chasing Smart Beta.
You will be fresh off of your enthusiasm and momentum from Symposium in December, so please join us for an afternoon and happy hour presentation from Katherine Collins of Honeybee Capital. Katherine will present her concepts of using biomimicry to provide resilient, regenerative, and profitable investment strategy. If you had to look up the definition of biomimicry, like I did, then you should be at the December 15, at 2pm chapter meeting.
