It’s not an easy job in this Alberta economy to look into the future and provide realistic, practical and non-biased information. But one of the top financial experts in Alberta and Canada will do just that in Wetaskiwin Jan. 18.

Angus Watt, managing director, Individual Investor Services, National Bank Financial, CEO & Partner, Angus Watt Advisory Group will give his 2017 economic outlook at the January Wetaskiwin Regional Chamber of Commerce luncheon, and for every reader wanting to know more about what the economy holds this year, this is a must-attend event.

Wetaskiwin chamber executive director Jennifer Garries said this time of year, people love to get some information about the economy of the coming months, but with economic doldrums continuing, an economic forecast from a respected expert should be welcome.

“Angus has been out there in the past,” said Garries by phone Jan. 5. “He’s a big draw.”

Garries noted Watt is a household name in any community that receives Global Edmonton news coverage. Watt is a well-known TV commentator.

She said Watt will give a forecast for the coming year with a financial flavour to it.

But the presentation isn’t just for financial advisors, noted the executive director. She said Watt’s presentation will be of interest to anyone wanting to hear about commodities, small business, large business or home-based business with insight at provincial, federal and international level. Watt also usually has a question and answer period at the end of his remarks and the event will wrap-up by 1 p.m.

The luncheon will be held at the Best Western Wayside Inn in Wetaskiwin on Hwy #2A Wednesday, January 18 with doors opening at 11:30 a.m. Tickets are $25 per person for members, $35 per person for non-members. Garries said she’s expecting about 100 attendees.

She noted blocks of seats between four and eight are available for groups too. Tickets are on sale now online at www.wetaskiwinchamber.com, or call 780-312-0657.
