LANCASTER, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--When the investment managers at Emerald Asset Management began planning their annual February investment conference, they couldn’t have anticipated the coronavirus, its rapid evolution towards a worldwide pandemic or the shock waves it has sent through global financial markets. But their two-plus decades of experience with volatile markets have given them the ability to execute quickly, so the upcoming February 6th Groundhog Day Investment Forum will feature important information and analysis from Emerald’s investment team.
Emerald’s Biotech team, Dr. Terry M. Smith, PhD and Dr. Nishit Trivedi, PhD, MBBS will join Emerald CEO Joseph E. Besecker as they discuss:
- What past outbreaks such as the SARS virus can tell us about how governments, the worldwide medical community and global financial markets might react in the days and weeks ahead; and
- How U.S. biotechnology companies are on the forefront of developing a vaccine to slow the spread of the coronavirus – and how quickly it could be deployed in the U.S.
“The coronavirus isn’t only a health epidemic, it risks a global financial contagion because China is omnipresent in economies around the world,” said Emerald CEO Joseph Besecker. “Our team of life sciences research analysts – investment professionals who also have a PhD – can help cut through the noise and hype and provide practical analysis to these issues at hand,” he said.
The Groundhog Day Investment Forum will be held on Thursday, February 6th at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. A full list of presenting companies, seminars by Emerald’s investment professionals and registration details are available on Emerald’s website at www.TeamEmerald.com/groundhog.
