Business leaders gather to hear economic and business prospects at the 12th annual DuPage County Regional Business Outlook

Dear Eser, CFA, Managing Director, Research and Portfolio Management, Retirement Advisory Services for Mesirow is back for the second year to present the global economic outlook. Esser described in detail the current economic trends and the likelihood of a potential recession.

“The stock market is not an economy,” Esser said. “US GDP growth forecasts for 2022 remain strong. Americans are still spending, retail sales are rising, and restaurants are seeing more personal visitors than before the pandemic. “She continued: moderate downturn in the economy. “

Tim Cranethe president of Wintrust reiterated some of these views in his business perspective, where he shared insights on how these economic trends and other factors affect the business community.

“We are still somewhat optimistic about the economy, but it will be very volatile … things will remain turbulent for a while,” Crane said. He then outlined some of the challenges facing the business community now and in the future, including cybersecurity and fraud prevention, the evolving use of office space and how this will affect real estate and labor – especially young people.

Jarrett Peyton, a television sports personality, philanthropist and entrepreneur, ended the event with a keynote address. Peyton shared stories about some of the moments that shaped his life and how important it is to find passion, perseverance and attendance.
