ADVISORY, Sep 24, 2007 (PrimeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) - City National Bank on October 18, 2007 will host a free, interactive Web presentation featuring CNBC's Ron Insana and City National Chief Investment Officer Richard A. Weiss, who will talk about the challenges of investing in today's environment against the backdrop of the 20-year anniversary of the 1987 stock market crash. At the end of the presentation, they will take questions from participants.

As if today's market volatility isn't enough, the '87 crash (along with the 1998 credit crunch and 2000 tech bubble) is a stark reminder of how quickly things can change for investors. Fortunately, there are many lessons from the past two decades that can be applied today. This Webinar will demonstrate how individuals who learn to heed the warnings of the markets can make better decisions about their investments, mortgages and loans, real estate purchases, career choices and much more.
