PURCHASE, N.Y., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- George Schultze, Founder and Managing Member of Schultze Asset Management, LLC ("SAM"), was a keynote speaker at the European Alternative & Institutional Investing Summit today in Monaco.  In the macroeconomic perspectives panel, he noted the primary macroeconomic risk for investors in today's capital markets. "(1) Consumer confidence & spending, (2) inflation & risk free interest rates, and (3) competitive currency devaluations are the primary risks," according to Mr. Schultze and the best way of dealing with these is, "through hedging tools such as long precious metals positions and short long-term U.S. government interest rate positions." Mr. Schultze added that careful long investment in certain liquid equities, such as U.S. post-reorganization equities, should also perform well despite the foregoing macroeconomic risks.
