Uhler Vertich White Advisors recently hosted clients at Alliance for the Arts for “The Experts Speak,” its annual program that features financial authorities presenting information about timely topics. This year’s expert, Raphael Lewis, head of specialist research at Newton Investment Management, presented on the benefits of nontraditional research. Lewis shared insights on how his team uses thematic research, geopolitical research, private markets and forensic accounting to provide deep-dive channel research to their investment partners.

“This annual event is always well received by our clients. They truly appreciate the opportunity to better understand current events as they relate to their investments. Plus, our team enjoys making these valuable connections,” said Tom Uhler, co-founder and principal of Uhler Vertich White Advisors.
