Join us for the first meeting of the year and hear from an expert about what to expect for the economy in 2022.

The global pandemic and the unprecedented response to it has resulted in several imbalances looming across the economy and the financial markets.

Mike Filing, UMB Bank, will highlight the major themes, concerns and implications for the economy. There is often a correlation between gift planning opportunities and the conditions of inflation, interest rates, and market performance.

We’ll explore how these imbalances could impact future economic growth and discuss solutions to keep the economy in balance, or what we call the Great Balancing Act.
