Topic: Jackass Investing: The Myths and Mistakes of Conventional Investment Wisdom
Speaker: Mike Dever, CEO, Founder, Brandywine Asset Management, Inc
Mike Dever, author of the best-selling book “Jackass Investing: Don’t do it. Profit from it.” (Ignite LLC, 2011) and a 30-plus-year hedge fund veteran, will present an innovative (and some say controversial) approach to portfolio diversification. Find out why studies that say asset class selection dominates portfolio returns are wrong. Learn why asset classes themselves are merely “archaic artifacts of our investing past.” Discover the power of diversifying with “return drivers.” See why conventional portfolio construction is not only risky, but it is the equivalent of gambling. Learn how to create a “free lunch” portfolio that earns greater returns with less risk.
