    We are pleased to announce Dr. Janet L. Yellen as this year’s Keynote speaker for the 2020 Forecast Event. This year’s moderator for the event is Margaret Franklin, CFA, CEO and President of the CFA Institute.

    President Barack Obama nominated Dr. Janet L. Yellen on October 9, 2013 to become the chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.  She was the first woman to hold that position.  She is recognized for initiating the reversal of monetary policies initiated in response to the financial crisis of 2008.  Highlights of her esteemed career include, overseeing a program to shrink the Fed’s balance sheet through gradual redemptions of principal on treasury and mortgage bonds that the Fed had purchased to stimulate the economy, and strong job and wage growth, both of which occurred while she maintained low interest rates.  

    Dr. Yellen graduated summa cum laude with an economics degree from Brown University in 1967 and went on to receive her Ph.D. from Yale University in 1971. She then worked as a professor at several prestigious universities, including Harvard, The London School of Economics and the University of California at Berkeley. In 2004 she became president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.

    Margaret Franklin, CFA was appointed CEO and President of the CFA Institute on September 2, 2019. She is the first woman to hold this position in the Institutes 73-year history. Marg Franklin has been a leader in the investment management industry for 28 years, most recently as President of BNY Mellon Wealth Management in Canada and head of International Wealth Management in North America. Her deep practitioner experience has been gained at firms ranging from large, global asset managers to start ups, including Marret Private Wealth, State Street Global Advisors and Barclays Global Investors. Her work has included advising individuals, families, pension plans, endowments, foundations and government agencies.
