Letter from Savant’s CEO

When Savant recapitalized in 2016 by expanding employee ownership and partnering with several outside family offices that provided the company with additional patient capital, our lead outside investor was Cynosure, the investment vehicle for the Eccles Family Office and Eccles Family Foundations in Salt Lake City, Utah. Randy had co-founded and led Cynosure prior to joining both the Federal Reserve Board and Financial Stability Board.

Having gotten to know Randy on a personal level, I can attest that he is one of the most knowledgeable and insightful people I have ever met. He has a deep understanding of markets, the economy, global economics, and banking. He is sure to have unique and timely insights given his current position on the Federal Reserve Board and in his roles as the top U.S. banking and global financial markets regulator.

The George S. and Dolores Dore Eccles Foundation and Cynosure, who have been wonderful business partners, are providing Savant’s clients and friends exclusive complimentary access to a live fireside chat with Randy about the COVID-19 crisis and its effect on markets, the economy, and business.

Randal Quarles and Mike Leavitt, the former U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary and Utah Governor, will have a discussion about these issues during the live chat. A panel of academic and business experts will join Randy and Mike to provide actionable insights for businesses of all sizes. Participants will gain context about the pandemic and practical main street business intelligence.

The webinar will explore how the COVID-19 crisis compares to the Great Depression and Great Recession. Randy will talk about the Federal Reserve, macroeconomic forces related to the crisis, how banks and small business can navigate the crisis, and how Congress and the federal government are focused on supporting businesses during these challenging times.

This is a unique opportunity for Savant clients and friends. I hope you can join us for this exclusive presentation whether you are an individual who is interested in financial markets and the economy, or a business owner who is looking for useful tips to navigate this crisis.
