Current Events & Market Moves

The stock market is hitting record highs and business language is shifting from resilience to recovery & rebound.  Simultaneously there’s talk of inflation and many organizations are still struggling and in need of support.

Catherine Murray offers a wealth of knowledge through interviews with economists, strategists, asset allocators, traders, CEOs, owners & operators of businesses, in addition to policy makers. Many will know her from her previous position, as a senior anchor at BNN Bloomberg, for the past 10 years. The great relationships she formed with guests has allowed her to continue interviewing them, on her digital platform, in a more in-depth/longer format vs a 5-7 minute TV conversation.  She covers the most pressing & relevant items & opportunities, including market moves, fintech, cryptocurrencies and more.

Secondly, she heads up her family office; the future of wealth is exactly her mandate. The position allows her access to some of the smartest investors, and emerging opportunities. Combining that with her Wall Street background, she’s equipped to share themes & ideas that shape future investment return outcomes. Importantly, although she spent her career in equity research and institutional sales at William Blair, Goldman & Deutsche Bank, she  began as a retail assistant at one of the big 5 banks. Through that experience, she has a great appreciation for the importance of an advisor role and the individual investor.

Her previous roles included Vice-President of Institutional Sales and Trading at Deutsche Bank, Associate at Goldman Sachs in Institutional Equity Sales and Trading, and Associate Research Analyst at William Blair; covering retail and e-commerce companies. While working on Wall Street, Catherine travelled weekly with CEOs of both large and small cap public companies, and across every industry.
