Global Macroeconomic Trends Seminar Attracts Finance Luminaries to GGU’s San Francisco Campus

Experts from PIMCO, JP Morgan, Wells Capital, and Merk Investments Bring Real-World Experience to Audience

The longevity of the current recovery in the U.S.—the second-longest in its history—is creating uncertainty among some members of the financial community. Adjunct Finance Professor Mohsin Hafeez, MBA, CFP®, has invited a distinguished panel to a GGU seminar in December to discuss the complexities of the worldwide macroeconomic environment and their possible impact on the recovery’s duration.

Mohsin explains: “Economic recoveries don’t necessarily die of old age; someone, or something, kills them. They respond to worldwide macroeconomic trends, central bank policies, geopolitical vagaries such as Brexit, wasteful excesses, a potential NOKO disaster, an overriding wave of uncalled for nationalism and populism, and financial snafus such as the dot-com burst or the mortgage-driven crash in 2008.” Join us for this special event to hear more insights from Mohsin and those of his fellow luminaries.

A Perspective on Global Macroeconomic Trends: Catalysts and Implications [RSVP] will include a panel discussion with:

Joachim Fels
Global Economic Advisor, Managing Director



Joshua Feuerman, CFA®
Managing Director
JP Morgan Asset Management



Gary Schlossberg
Senior Economist
Wells Capital Management Inc.



Axel Merk
President & CIO
Merk Investments



Mohsin, with several years of global experience in banking, is currently a Financial Planning professional at a large international financial services firm, and a founder of a corporate executive education venture, Global Minerva Alliance ( He will kick off the event with an overview of the global macroeconomic trends and the perceived catalysts and implications. Dave Kaczorowski, MBA, CFA®, Adjunct Professor and endowment investor, will co-moderate the panel with Mohsin.

The panelists will, taking a cue from Mark Twain, next discuss the question: “Are the reports of the death of the economic recovery an exaggeration? Or is there some veracity in them?” We invite the attendees to ask questions and join the discussion when we open the Q&A session. The free seminar will be of interest to all GGU students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the public.
