Schultze Asset Management Founder George Schultze Delivers Key Comments at European Family Office & Private Wealth Management Forum

Excerpt from Press Release:

“During his keynote panel, Mr. Schultze discussed the outlook for U.S. interest rates and inflation. In light of the slow pace of the economic recovery, as well as a continuing high rate of unemployment, he forecast that interest rates will remain low versus historical norms well into 2014. Regarding inflation, he stated that it is tame as measured by the consumer price index (CPI) even though we’re seeing asset bubbles in certain areas such as the bond market. Regarding opportunities in the U.S. equity markets, Mr. Schultze stated that they offer terrific potential upside due to “attractive valuations, high levels of cash on corporate balance sheets, and a wide-open debt market that allows for value-creating catalysts (such as M&A, stock buy-backs, and dividends).” Even so, he cautioned that investors “need an edge – such as working with a manager who can invest long and short in certain niche fields” to successfully navigate today’s markets.”
