Mar272020–May012020Sponsored by The Stephen. D Cutler Center for Investments and Finance, this weekly webinar series will focus on the financial impact of COVID-19. Join us each week to learn from faculty and alumni thought leaders as they discuss and answer your questions on various topics amidst the current crisis.Friday, March 27: Associate Professor Jerome Taillard - Past and Present Crisis: The Policy ResponseWe have witnessed tremendous economic growth around the globe in the last century. But the path to growth is all but linear. Crises of all kinds occur regularly. Governments and the policies they enact become essential in guaranteeing swift recoveries. We will explore the playbook governments use in crises. In doing so, we will uncover the role of key policy makers, how their actions affect markets and the overall economy, and ultimately lead to a recovery. Past crises as well as the current one will be discussed!Access the recording and slides here.Friday, April 3: Associate Professor Steven Feinstein - Lawsuits: Securities Litigation Precipitated by the COVID-19 Crash While COVID-19 has wrought harm to health, it also caused a financial market crash. A surge in litigation, including allegations of fraud, often follows a major market loss. Some allegations are tied directly to the factors that caused the crash. But more cases focus on fraud that is exposed by the crash. Still others address what is said and done in the wake, after the economic disruptions have begun. Corporations are owned by investors but run by their agents. For the system to work, rewards and honest information must be shared equitably. This webinar, citing new and precedent cases, and anticipated imminent cases, will explore what happens when the rules are broken. Friday, April 10:Assistant Professor Luke Stein - Measuring Market Volatility Friday, April 17: Lecturer Glenn Migliozzi, CFA - Hedge Funds, Price Volatility, and the Career Ending Margin Calls Friday, April 24: Lecturer Paul Griesmer - Current Crisis and the Impact on Real Estate Friday, May 1: Senior Lecturer Patrick Gregory, CFA & John Bailer, CFA, Senior Portfolio Manager for Large Cap Dividend Portfolios, Mellon - Equity Market Turmoil: Finding Opportunities while Mitigating RiskThe Babson community, including students, staff, faculty and alumni are invited to join.
