Jeff Bush
Principal, The Washington Update



Jeff will share his insights on the election, from the formal nomination through the election of the president, House, and Senate in November. His discussion provides a unique analysis of the factors likely to influence the election result, as well as the markets’ likely reaction. Finally, he'll analyze and predict the outcomes and consequences of substantive matters - such as trade, taxes and coronavirus legislation - that Congress and the president are poised to address.


A dynamic and insightful speaker and author, Jeff Bush is known for his unique ability to translate difficult and confusing information coming out of Washington D.C. into winning growth strategies for business owners, executives, and high net worth investors.

Jeff presents more than 200 times yearly in the US and abroad to a client base that includes a who’s who list of fortune 500 firms from Wall Street to Main Street and everywhere in between. Jeff frequently appears on CNBC’s Nightly Business Report, featured in various industry publications, including Investment News, and a guest on POTUS Sirius/XM Radio. While Jeff is best known as a keynote speaker, he has shared the stage with many notables, including Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Stanley Fischer, Ron Insana, a reporter for Market Score Board and former Senior CNBC Analyst, Consuelo Mack, host of Wealth Track, Jeffrey Applegate, CIO for Morgan Stanley, Robert Reynolds President and CEO of Putnam Investments, and John Theil, former Vice Chairman of Global Wealth Management at Bank of America. Jeff is a 30+ year veteran of the financial industry. By the end of his career on Wall Street, he was managing a $50+ billion sales organization. Before that, Jeff was the youngest managing partner in the 150- year history of The New England Financial. Jeff holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration/Management with an emphasis in Accounting, computers, and philosophy from William Jewell College. Jeff’s dedication, forward-thinking, and strategic abilities have resulted in performance records, industry awards, and industry accolades.

12:20 PM - 1:10 PM:  Are Traditional Value Allocations Misunderstood


Phil DeSantis, CFA
Senior Vice President, Head of Product Management - Westwood Holdings Group



Westwood believes traditional value allocations are often misunderstood by many investors. Historically many advisors have shifted to traditional value strategies in an effort perform better in down markets with the expectations of avoiding high beta or high valuations in the growth asset class. As accounting rules and the types of assets that create value for many companies have made Price to Book and even PE ratio’s a flawed metric in and by itself. This has led to secular underperformance in traditional value factors as whole and has disappointed many investors who expect to perform better in down markets simply by owning undervalued companies.

Our goal for the session is to help advisors better understand how quality is a way of investing in the value asset class to achieve better performance during periods of economic distress with more consistent performance long-term. Our presentation will analyze the challenges with traditional valuation factors both historically and more recently during the downturn due to COVID-19. We will also discuss what it means to invest at the intersection of quality and value resulting from “true” economics profits that can result in a potential return premium for investors long-term.


Mr. DeSantis joined Westwood in December 2015 as Senior Vice President, Head of Marketing and Product Management. He is responsible for the planning, development and execution of the firm’s marketing, communications, product management and product development initiatives. Mr. DeSantis joins the firm with over 17 years of experience across sales and distribution, product management, strategic marketing and strategy. Prior to joining Westwood, Mr. DeSantis worked at PNC Capital Advisors, LLC, in Chicago, Illinois, as a Managing Director serving as a product specialist and practice leader. He also served as Director, Senior Product Specialist at UBS Global Asset Management and Vice President for their Multi-Asset and Liquid Alternative Strategies and Senior Product Manager for Northern Trust Asset Management in Chicago, Illinois. Mr. DeSantis earned his BS in Finance from Arizona State University. Additionally, he is a member of the CFA Institute and a Registered Securities Representative (FINRA Series 6, 7 and 63).
