Advisor Interview: Katherine Gordon and Warren Gerow Explain How Rising Interest Rates May Impact Investors

Here at Sightline Wealth Management, we believe our entire team is greater than the sum of its parts. To help you get to know our entire investment advisory team, we have launched an Advisor Interview Series. With this series, each advisor will sit down one-on-one with Senior Investment Advisor to Sightline Warren Gerow for an insightful discussion on different aspects of the markets and economy and how they help their clients protect their wealth in times of volatility.


Following a hotter-than-expected CPI inflation report last week, the U.S. Federal Reserve raised interest rates by another 75 basis points on Wednesday, September 21, in hopes that these higher rates will help combat the increasingly dire issue of inflation.

Amidst this backdrop, Sightline’s Warren Gerow and Sightline Senior Investment Advisor Katherine Gordon sat down earlier this week for a conversation to help investors understand what this may mean for their portfolios. Some of the specific topics that Gerow and Gordon discuss include:

  • How much interest rates have increased in the U.S. and Canada prior to the September Fed meeting
  • How the market has reacted to this year’s rise in interest rates and the possible reasons why
  • Predictions for the future direction of interest rates based on both historical and current factors
  • The types of investments that typically perform best in a higher interest rate environment and which areas to avoid

If you have any questions about the topics discussed during this Advisor Interview, please do not hesitate to contact us at (416) 945-6228.
