A Santa Barbara Advisory Council Sponsored Event

In this wonderful event, which combines education and wine tasting from local vineyards, James will give us an understanding why investors react the way they do to market volatility and how they can overcome biases in portfolio construction. He will illustrate how investors can balance their needs with the realities of markets and set expectations around risk and return targets across asset classes. 2022 is shaping up to be a very different year than how historical / traditional models would have predicted. How you allocate going forward is critical!

After the presentation we will have time to do networking. The wineries Zotovich and Jaffurs will at the venue and present to us a selection of their fine wines. We will be able to chat, have a glass of wine, some appetizers, and enjoy the beautiful view of the Channel Islands from the Cabrillo Pavilion Deck.
