Electrification of automobile transportation in the United States presents an economic opportunity that is both large in scope and potentially hugely disruptive to multiple industries that are mainstays in most investors’ portfolios.  How would our traditional view of the auto industry, its manufacturing supply chain, utilities and even petroleum change if electrification of transportation proceeded more quickly than anticipated? We’ve put together a panel to discuss these issues.

  •  Will a transition be slowed by consumer concerns like range anxiety or accelerated by the changing lifestyles of a younger generation of consumers?
  • What might this transition look like?
  • How fast could it happen?
  • What would it mean for the way we analyze and value companies in the auto, energy, and utility industries?

Please join our panel at a Boston Security Analysts Society lunch on April 24th for a discussion of the implications of this transition for investors.
