Athena’s Lisette Cooper Makes Guest Appearance on “Mornings with Maria”
Athena Capital Advisors’ Founder, CEO and Chief Investment Officer, Dr. Lisette Cooper, appeared on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria” in September 2015 and spoke with host Maria Bartiromo to discuss strategies for investing in a volatile market.
“There is a lot of volatility right now, but we don’t think it’s really a downward trend. We’re looking to rebalance the portfolio around the world,” Cooper discussed, further highlighting, “We’re moving more money from passive management into active management.”
She added that while issues in China continue to weigh on the markets, certain segments, such as technology, are still expected to show growth. The segment also discussed wage growth domestically, the appetite of U.S. consumers and decelerating growth in emerging markets.
Dr. Lisette Cooper founded Athena in 1993. As CEO, she sets the firm’s overall direction and leads Athena’s Investment Committee. Prior to founding Athena, Lisette served as Manager of Consulting Services for Barra Inc., now MSCI Barra.
