We had futurist and economist Andrew Busch present at our FSI Annual Kickoff event in February. Andy was fantastic for our members as he provided key insights into the new policy direction from the Biden administration and the great opportunities coming in the future for financial services. He greatly enhanced our virtual meeting and we look forward to having him back soon.

The Future Economy: Opportunities for Growth
The world is going to see more economic change in the next 5 years than we have seen in the last 100 years. 2021 will be transformational as trends super-charged by the pandemic fully exert themselves on the economy. AI, robots, Zoom, ESG and bitcoin are just a few of the extraordinary tools being leveraged right now to help business overcome, adapt and thrive. Are you aligning yourself for what will occur? As a futurist and economist, Andy dives deep into exploring how innovation, policy changes and societal shifts drive opportunities for clients. Are you thinking about how to run your business better or how you can grow it faster? How are you challenging yourself with new ideas, new concepts, new innovations? Can you understand the economic forces driving change to lead you in transforming your business and adapting your strategy to take control of the future? Andy says, “Let’s solve these problems together by getting you the tools you need to be successful.”
Beyond the Election: Impact on the Economy, Business and Jobs
The outcome of the 2020 election will have the largest swing in economic policy in our lifetimes. With a unified Democratic Congress, the Biden administration will bring large changes impacting the entire economy. Fiscal stimulus, tax & trade policy and clean energy/environment will all see big changes. Banks, insurers and tech will likely see regulatory shifts that may disrupt their business models. Also, how does vaccine hesitancy and virus mutation change the focus for policy? Andrew Busch tackles all of this and answers the key questions: what does it mean for your industry and how you can prepare for it? In this keynote, Andy objectively breaks down the policies impacting the economy, business and jobs. He’ll give you the winners and losers in each sector of the economy. Trade, tax, energy and environment will all be impacted and discussed. Andy takes your audience out of the current COVID chaos to provide confidence in the future. More about this keynote >
ESG: a major opportunity
Environmental, Social and Governance or ESG is considered one of the hottest investment themes today for clients and investment professionals. Andy explains how a Biden victory and the new EU budget will supercharge interest in ESG. This is already happening as record amount of money has flowed into sustainable focused ETFs and open-end mutual funds in both in 2019. Most striking, money flowed into ESG equity products in 2020 when almost all other equity funds saw money leave. More about this keynote >

About Andrew Busch
Andy’s unconventional path to finance, politics and the economy has taught him that the big picture is filled in by small details and requires unconventional thinking to see them. He was number six out of seven kids that taught him to scrap, shout and fight for the last piece of food at dinner. He brought this determination to his career and to his insights into the world. Before he went into finance, he painted street curbs, he mowed lawns, he worked construction, and he ran his own painting company. In finance, he traded currencies and wrote research on the markets during the 1985 Plaza Accord; the 1998 Russian default; and to the 2008 global financial crisis. He’s advised major mutual funds, hedge funds, US Treasury Secretaries and the White House. In 2017, he became the nation’s first Chief Market Intelligence Officer at the CFTC, advising the SEC, the US Treasury, the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Reserve of New York and the White House.
Andy energises and informs his audiences
He delivered a high energy and engaging session to our large virtual audience. Andrew adapted to the technology, ensured our branding was strategically placed, and delivered compelling visuals. Our clients were actively engaged, and we ran out of time for all the questions they wanted to ask. His message of “prepare now for the opportunities ahead” was the message of optimism we needed for our attendees.
It was just what we were looking for – an engaging, interesting, and informative presentation to engage our virtual audience. Andrew keeps the presentation moving, uses effective visuals, and provides thoughtful analysis throughout. He’s an outstanding presenter in a virtual environment, and I know he would be more amazing in person. He used the technology to its full-effect with audience engagement, an event-specific background, and effective visuals. As a meeting planner, he was easy to work with and a consummate professional. I highly recommend Andrew for your next event!
