As markets go through historic volatility due to the COVID-19 pandemic, business leaders need the best and timeliest information from top experts. That’s why we’ve enlisted California State Treasurer Fiona Ma and some of the sharpest minds in finance for a virtual private conversation on how these unprecedented financial markets have impacted everything from M&A and restructuring to navigating a worsened housing crisis—and how businesses can work with government programs to carve a path forward.
