The Washington Update:  An Overview of the Political Environment, Prospective Legislation, and Strategies for Investment and Retirement Planning

ANDY FRIEDMAN

Sponsored by Communities Foundation of Texas and Quest Capital Management

 

Andy Friedman, an expert in political and legislative affairs, will address a number of matters in his 2018 presentation.  He will focus on the portions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of particular importance to business owners, investors, and financial advisors, pointing out which individual situations and economic sectors are likely to fare well, or poorly, under the legislation.  He will consider the extent to which Congress will adopt the President’s legislative initiatives, and how those initiatives are likely to affect the economy, the markets, industry sectors, and investments.  And he will consider how the outcomes of the Mueller investigation and the 2018 elections may alter the administration’s ability to implement its far-reaching policies. According to CNBC, Andy Friedman (Founder and Principal of The Washington Update) is “one of the nation’s most sought-after speakers on all things political.”  An expert on political affairs, Andy explains the ever changing, sometimes confusing, and often crazy world of Washington in a straightforward bipartisan manner.  He is known for predicting the outcomes of Washington deliberations and providing financial advisors and investors with strategies to consider in light of the changing political landscape. Andy was a senior partner with the law firm of Covington & Burling in Washington, D.C., where he practiced for almost thirty years, serving as head of the tax and corporate groups.  He received his bachelor degree as valedictorian from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, and his law degree from the Harvard Law School. Andy also served as tax counsel to Major League Baseball, the National Football League, the National Basketball Association, and the National Hockey League. .Andy appears on CNBC, which refers to him as “Wall Street’s Tax Expert” and calls him “one of Washington’s savviest political observers.”  Andy also has appeared on the Larry Kudlow Show, the Fox Business Channel, and POTUS radio, has been profiled in the Washington Post and Research Magazine, and is quoted extensively in publications ranging from the Wall Street Journal to USA Today.
