MSCI’s Economic Summit Is Just Around The Corner—Are You Registered?

If you have not yet registered for MSCI’s Economic Summit, you should. As Steve Lawrence makes clear in MSCI’s Edge, this summit is like no other, offering the most accurate, timely end-use market data, plus a uniquely broad industry perspective on the global economy you can't get anywhere else.

Neil Jacobstein, a keynote speaker at the summit, will explore the dramatic developments in store for the industrial metals supply chain over the next five to 10 years and beyond. Jacobstein said he fully understands that for many MSCI members with five-year investment windows, there is a lot of skepticism right now. He believes, however, there is a lot for middle and smaller metals companies to think about and consider investing in. Jacobstein said, “Today there are advanced digital tools for diagnosis, planning, quality control, and increased flexibility all made possible by layering in sensors and machine learning on the factory floor.”

Attendees also will get an exclusive look at demand predictions for 16 different end market breakouts, led by economists and analysts who are subject matter experts and a panel of top executives from across the supply chain will look at their challenges now and for the future and will answer MSCI members’ questions. Participants in that panel include:

  • Richard T. Marabito, chief financial officer, Olympic Steel;
  • Dennis M. Oates, chief executive officer and president, Universal Stainless & Alloy Products, Inc.; and
  • Michael Petersen, chief executive officer, Petersen Aluminum Corporation

From agriculture and aerospace to transportation and infrastructure, the summit’s timely breakout sessions will give MSCI members the business intelligence they need for growth and increased profitability. Register here to join MSCI September 18–19 in Schaumburg, Ill. for this compact, thorough look at the future for industrial metals.
