The AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust (HIT) today released the second installment of its HIT Podcast series, "Community Revitalization the Union Way."

Chang Suh, HIT's senior executive vice president and chief portfolio manager, delivered an astute market outlook and discussed HIT's investment strategies in the uncertain economy.

In the podcast, Mr. Suh explained that in this current climate of uncertainty, " it's important to have a well-diversified strategy and portfolio."

He added, "Certainly there are many investors that have a lot of optimism here in the U.S. with the change in administration, but I don't think anyone can deny the high degree of uncertainty especially political uncertainty, which is very hard to handicap in the market place. So it's only prudent for investors to have bonds and fixed-income."

Listen to the podcast to hear more of how the HIT is responding to these uncertain economic times.
