|8:35 am||THE FUTURE OF BANKING & OUTLOOK FOR THE YEAR AHEAD
With the inauguration less than a week away, investors are repositioning for President Barack Obama’s second term in office and related fall-out beyond the fiscal cliff. Congress passed an eleventh-hour bill averting spending cuts and tax increases that threatened to push the world’s largest economy into a recession. At the same time, a rebound in housing and stabilization in global growth set the stage for 2013. What will the New Year bring? How are investors positioning themselves for the next four years? What are the major investment themes that will play out this year? What opportunities are being overlooked? VIDEO

|9:05 am||BEYOND THE FISCAL CLIFF: MEMORANDUM TO POLICY MAKERS FROM BRIDGEWATER
The Fiscal Cliff kept investors on edge, as lawmakers remained at loggerheads ahead of the year-end deadline to avoid $600 billion in spending cuts and tax increases. With a deal in place, what is the road forward? What can monetary and fiscal policy makers do to inspire investor confidence in the markets? VIDEO

|9:30 am||THE U.S. MARKET REPORT: PREDICTIONS & MAJOR THEMES
Stocks hit a 12-year low following the credit crisis four years ago and have been steadily climbing back towards their October 2007 record highs. Expansion of the U.S. housing markets, along with recovering markets in Europe, has helped bolster investor confidence. Will the Dow Jones Industrial Average surpass its October 2007 high of 14,164.53? Is the S&P 500 on track for a record year? What are the fundamentals that will drive the bull market that began in March 2009? What sectors will outperform and underperform? What are the existing drags on the market? What is the outlook for the U.S. equity market? What are the fundamentals that will play into the macroeconomic picture? VIDEO

|10:05 am||NEW YEAR: RESOLUTION IN EUROPE?
The European debt crisis infused volatility into the global markets. Financial-market tensions have abated after the European Central Bank unveiled its Outright Monetary Transactions bond-buying plan on Sept. 6, pledging to spend as much money as needed to restore confidence in bond markets. The program provides support to debt-strapped nations as long as they sign up to economic reforms. How will the European story play out in 2013? VIDEO
“The reforms that we’ve agreed on are starting to take effect. Nevertheless, we still need a lot of patience. The crisis is far from over.”

|12:05 pm||A WORD FROM THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF ATLANTA
The Fed has kept its benchmark interest rate near zero since 2008. The central bank eased policy this month by saying the rate would stay low “at least as long” as unemployment remains above 6.5 percent and inflation projections are for no more than 2.5 percent. The Fed expanded its quantitative easing program by adding $45 billion of Treasury security purchases each month to the $40 billion of monthly government-backed mortgage bond buying it began in September. The Fed’s steps aim to keep rates low to spur an even bigger recovery in housing. What is the expectation of further asset purchases? What are the concerns about growth and inflation? What is the outlook for interest rates? What is the outlook for unemployment to fall below 6.5 percent? How can monetary policy help spur job growth? What is the legacy of the fiscal cliff for policy makers? VIDEO

|2:15 pm||THE GLOBAL DEBT CHALLENGE: WHAT CLASS WILL OUTPERFORM?
Government securities in 26 markets tracked by Bloomberg and the European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies generated positive returns last year for the first time since the 2008 financial crisis. The world’s leading economies are cutting supply after every major government bond market rallied for the first time since 2008. The amount of bills, notes and bonds coming due for the Group of Seven nations plus Brazil, Russia, India and China will drop to $7.38 trillion from $7.60 trillion in 2012, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Japan, the U.K., Germany, France, Italy and Brazil will see a decline, while the U.S., Canada, Russia, India and China will face an increase. While high debt loads are blamed for curbing global economic growth, bond investors are encouraged by signs that some nations are starting to rein in spending as they extend the average maturity of their obligations. What is the outlook for the sovereign debt market? Which bonds will outperform? What is the outlook for corporate bond and high yield bonds? What fixed income strategies are investors putting to work in 2013? VIDEO
