Q&A With Steven Skancke

Keel Point

December 7, 2020

Dr. Steven L. Skancke, Keel Point’s Chief Economic Advisor is a wonderful source of knowledge for our clients and our Wealth Advisors.  Dr. Skancke’s long career began within the federal government where he served four Presidential Administrations, beginning with Nixon and ending with Reagan.  Steve served on the White House National Security Council Staff and economic policy team and at the U.S. Treasury, working on national security, intelligence, development, and regulation of banking, tax, and law enforcement. He was also involved in multiple administration transitions.

Every few weeks, after our weekly meeting, our wealth advisors carve out time with Steve to have a Q&A style discussion around the state of the economy and the markets.  Recently we recorded one of these sessions and wanted to share it with you, to give you a behind-the-scenes glimpse into what those conversations are like.  With a new Presidential Administration set to take office in January, elevated COVID-19 concerns, potential policy changes that could affect the economy and markets, our advisors had plenty of questions.  We hope this short 30-minute session will be beneficial for you.
