Event Detail

Ukraine: One Year Later – Session I: Monetary Policy and Market Implications

Register to join Session I of GIC’s upcoming series, Ukraine: One Year Later. We invite you to join us in person or virtually February 16-17, 2023 to explore investment implications, the defense budget, and the role of the financial system and Central Banks in war following the 2022 invasion of Ukraine through two days of panel discussions. Joining us for Keynote Remarks will be Loretta J. Mester, Ph.D., President and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.

This two-day meeting will be held in person and virtually. It will address monetary policy issues and financing issues related to the federal budget and defense expenditures. There will also be a session on financial market reactions and implications of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The opening series will include a military update by a retired supreme allied American commanding general, General Philip M. Breedlove, Commander, Supreme Allied Command, Europe, of the United States Air Force.


Ukraine: One Year Later is a four-part series examining the impact of the war in Ukraine hosted in partnership with the University of South Florida Sarasota Manatee, and the Florida West Coast Chapter of the Air and Space Forces Association. This hybrid series will take place virtually and in-person between February – April in 2023, and cover themes such as the military-geopolitical outlook, the financial-economic arena, implications on agriculture, cybersecurity, and world trade.

The conference series is co-chaired by Major General David Scott Gray, US Air Force (retired) and David R. Kotok, Chairman and CIO, Cumberland Advisors. They are developing the program so it blends the finance and economics issues of Russia-Ukraine with the military and defense components. This is the second year of the series following a successful and quickly assembled first year held shortly after Russia invaded. The events will be held in-person at the Selby Auditorium at the University of South Florida Sarasota – Manatee and virtually via zoom.
