You are invited to join us for an extraordinary and timely fixed income and credit risk symposium presented by very senior professionals on the afternoon of May 20th in New York City. PRMIA and IAFE have teamed up with Futures and Options World ( to offer the latest in investment thinking and risk analysis. This free PRMIA seminar will provide you with information and analysis that you can put to immediate benefit in your work.

The fixed income risk seminar focuses on the implications of the US Treasury's borrowing program including inflation-protected securities. United States Treasury Department's Tim Bitsberger will provide insight into funding plans (including their recent announcement on the 3-year note), considerations and measures of performance and TIPS program.

In addition, buyside and sellside fixed income investment issues will be discussed. Barclays Capital' s John Roberts will focus on the essentials of the TIPS market, and Vanguard's principal Tony Jiorle will explain fixed income risk management and investment strategies in the sector.
