Mike Scott and Thomas S. Bagley to Speak at IPI’s Fall Forum

July 17, 2015 — The Institute for Private Investors (IPI) provides innovative educational and networking resources to families with substantial assets and their advisors. IPI seeks to change the way investors work with advisors, and advisors work with investors, for the benefit of both. This year’s New York fall forum will be held at the Metropolitan Club.

Pelican Energy Partners’ Founder Mike Scott and Pfingsten Partners’ Founder Thomas S. Bagley, will jointly-lead a titled breakout session entitled, “Made in America…Again!” These manufacturing and energy investors discuss the economic and business impacts of the current resurgence of manufacturing in America. The session will explore:

  • How sustainable is this current trend?
  • What investment opportunities are resulting from the repatriation of manufacturing?
  • What are the risks/implications for foreign holdings?
