Banking Stress Ignored by Credit Markets

In an increasingly data-driven world, the investment team at Legacy realized that, through charts and graphs, we would be able to convey information more quickly and effectively. Charts also allow us to share larger sets of data with our audience, display trends and changes over time, and convey relationships between multiple data sets.

For these reasons, Gregory S. Hansen, Legacy’s Managing Director of Trust Investments, and Connor R. O’Brien,  Trust Investment Officer at Legacy, developed our popular “Chart Check” series. We publish timely economic content in an easy-to-understand visual format several times a month and provide a brief explanation of the data.

Remember to visit our Chart Check page at or connect with us on social media to ensure you always see the most recent information.
