Webinar | Debt Ceiling Drama

    | May 30, 2023

    Protracted debt ceiling negotiations are sparking renewed concerns that the U.S. government will default on its debt. Without intervention, this debate may come to a head in early June when projections indicate the Treasury will no longer be able to satisfy all government obligations.


    Telemus’ Matt Dmytryszyn, CFA (Chief Investment Officer) and Josh Levine, CFP® (Senior Financial Life Adviser & Partner) recently hosted a webinar to discuss some of the most pressing questions we’ve heard from our clients. In addition to answering viewer questions about the debt ceiling, Matt and Josh discussed:

    • The timeline around the debt ceiling
    • Telemus' viewpoint on the economic impact of any agreement
    • How markets have reacted before and after past debt ceiling negotiations
    • What investors should consider if the federal government nears the point of running out of funds
    • Telemus’ perspective on the markets during this period of uncertainty
