3:10 - 4:00 PM:  Turning Political Questions into Productive Investing Dialogues


Ben Phillips, CFA

Chief Investment Officer, EventShares


Actions in Washington D.C. can be a powerful leading indicator for investment returns. Changing rules and regulations often lead to new business opportunities and remake entire industries. While the opportunity to invest in policy trends exists, many professional investors and advisors are distracted by political noise. Learn how to direct an emotional conversation about politics into a productive investing dialogue.  EventShares connects government policy changes and regulation to capital markets. By thoroughly researching policy trends and the impacted subsectors, investors can uncover uncorrelated return opportunities. The research drives the systematic stock selection in the only policy-themed ETF globally, the U.S. Legislative Opportunities ETF (PLCY).   


Ben Phillips
 serves as the Chief Investment Officer overseeing portfolio management and chairs the Investment Committee. Previously, Mr. Phillips was with Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM), where he had portfolio management responsibilities across several multi-sector total return funds. Prior to GSAM, he held senior investing roles at Providence Equity Partners and Lord Abbett. Mr. Phillips is a CFA charterholder and received an MBA and BSBA in Finance from the University of Missouri.
