Indianapolis Economic Update
Presented by First Financial Bank
Provide us with a little bit of information and request your invite to our next Indianapolis Economic Update
The Indianapolis Economic Update presented by First Financial Bank was held at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Nov. 8, 2016. The event, which was attended by local business leaders, featured a panel discussion about the economic outlook including Federal Reserve monetary policy, and a review of current local market conditions.
It was an interesting day to talk about the local, regional and national economic landscape
when our group of experts discussed important issues on the morning of an historic Election Day.
Get to know some of the panelists from our November 2016 event; and check back to see what we will be doing in 2017.
