What are reasonable investment expectations for the future? That's a daunting question these days, but Treasurer Emeritus Glenn Strehle will tackle it in a seminar on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 10 a.m. in the Bush Room (10-105).
The seminar, "Living with Stocks in a Down Market," was arranged by the Association of MIT Retirees but is open to the community.
Strehle will address questions such as how we should react when market prices decline and what we know about today's securities markets. There will be ample opportunity for questions.
Strehle (S.B. 1958, S.M.) was treasurer of MIT from 1975-98. During the first 10 years, he was MIT's chief investment officer, guiding the investment activities of the Institute and its retirement plans. He also headed the Office of Resource Development and the successful "Campaign for the future." In 1986 he assumed the additional title of vice president for finance.
Strehle is a chartered financial analyst and was a portfolio manager at a Boston investment company before returning to MIT. He is a former president of the Boston Security Analysts Society and the Boston Economic Club.
