TRUST to host 6th installment of Complimentary Fundamentals of Fixed Income webinar series
WASHINGTON, DC (July 8, 2014) — TRUST, the oldest and largest mutual fund family created for and by credit unions, will host the sixth webinar in its Fundamentals of Fixed Income series on July 15th, 2014 at 1:00pm Eastern. Special guest Jeff Greenert, Senior Portfolio Manager at VyStar Credit Union, will host the session entitled: What if the Fed Acts Sooner? Portfolio Management & Volatility.
Greenert will discuss key portfolio management issues, including the potential impact on credit union investment portfolios if volatility spikes again and whether credit unions are using a single volatility number or a market driven curve surface in their ongoing portfolio analysis.
This more advanced webinar follows Investing in Mortgage-Backed Securities, which was discussed in part five of TRUST’s educational series. Credit union professionals who attend will learn more about analyzing their investment portfolio and discuss what steps can be taken now to ensure that an institution’s risk exposure is being accurately measured.
These complimentary, 30-minute educational sessions are a resource for industry professionals of all levels. “The goal with each of these sessions is to help provide credit unions with the information and tools they need to effectively manage their investment portfolios,” said Jay Johnson, President of TRUST and EVP of Callahan & Associates. Interested credit unions can register for the July 15th session and view archived versions of the first five Fundamentals of Fixed Income Sessions, which covered topics like: What is a Bond; The Importance of the Yield Curve; Investing in Callables and Mortgage-Backed Securities, online at www.trustcu.com or by contacting us at email@example.com.
