Vining Sparks conducts webinar on economic conditions during pandemic

This is the fourth in the 2020 webinar series and will be conducted by Ricky Brillard, a senior vice president in the Investment Strategies Group at ICBA Securities.

Economic conditions deteriorated in the U.S. and globally with a the likelihood of a recession increasing as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.
