Portfolio Update

Highlights from the North America Mid-Year Meeting

By Ben Craker, Portfolio Manager

As expected, the Mid-Year Meeting was a whirlwind of working group and other activity with several of us looking for a way to clone ourselves to take part in more than one session at a time. Through the jam-packed three days a lot of progress was made, and great discussions were had in the in-person meetings, which helped to clarify the direction of multiple projects.
