• Describe and discuss the indicators that the Federal Reserve Monitors as catalysts for rate hikes.
• Describe how their company's industry sector may be impacted by rate hikes relative to other sectors.
• Advise their management team on potential adjustments to their IR messaging strategies in response to rate hikes.
