ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Determining an accurate outlook for the financial markets is never an easy task. Many investors tend to ask themselves, will the economy finally stabilize this year or will it tip back toward a recession? And with interest rates at all-time lows, investors are curious about the potential risk surrounding their fixed income portfolio.
To help better understand these issues, Savant Capital Management is bringing Charles Schwab Fixed Income Strategist, Kathy Jones, to Rockford on Thursday, May 16. Jones will explore the outlook for fixed income markets and how to manage risk. Jones will also discuss factors that can influence interest rates and the long-term performance of fixed income strategies.

She has studied global credit markets extensively throughout her career and works with both institutional and retail clients. Jones is regularly quoted in financial news media, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, Reuters and Bloomberg and has appeared on CNBC, Fox Business News, TheStreet.com, ABC News Radio and NPR.
