Kevin Gardiner is managing director of research, economics, and strategy at Barclays Wealth and has recently been in the news discussing the need for investors to reduce their exposure to government bonds. At the Fourth Annual CFA Institute European Investment Conference in Paris, he’ll be asking “Is There Life After Debt?” in a session covering asset allocation for private client portfolios.
