I invite you to join me for what I think (of course) is the best economic gathering on Earth: the Mauldin Economics Strategic Investment Conference.
My 2016 event will be better than ever with a new venue, new speakers, and many new faces in the crowd. One of them can be yours.
Our theme will be Decade of Disruption. If you think the last ten years brought global economic change, we’re only getting started.
The world can change far faster than most people think. Things we can’t even imagine now will be routine in 2025.
At SIC16 you will…
If you’ve never been to SIC, there is no time to waste.
Your only getting started analyst,
People say John Mauldin has the best rolodex on Wall Street. He always gives it a good spin and brings in both old friends and new faces. Watch this page for more speaker announcements as the conference draws closer.
Click on the photos below to learn more about each guest speaker. Additional speakers will be added as they are confirmed.
Global Economy: Eight years after the 2008 crisis, the world economy is still adapting to a radically new economic order. How will central banks help (or hurt) growth prospects? Which currencies will gain and lose strength? Which emerging market will take the baton from China and lead a new growth wave? You’ll hear answers from experts like Dr. Lacy Hunt and David Rosenberg.
Asset Allocation: To thrive in the 2020s, you need your capital planted in fertile soil. Which asset classes have the best chance to take root in the uncertain future? How can you build a global wealth strategy with the right risk-reward balance? At SIC you’ll get answers from the experts of Gavekal: Charles Gave, Anatole Kaletsky, and Louis-Vincent Gave. Their globe-spanning expertise helps some of the world’s top investment managers allocate their assets for optimal performance.
Geopolitics: If you have a 1980s world globe, it is now merely decorative. We now have radically different borders and countries. What will a 2030s globe look like? You’ll find out from Dr. George Friedman, one of the nation’s top geopolitical analysts. He'll show where you should look for growth and safety in the coming decades.
Stock & Bond Markets: Being in the right market at the right time won’t be enough in the coming years. You also have to be in the right sectors and stocks. John Mauldin’s favorite professional investors will give you a framework you can use to your advantage as you decide where – and how – to invest.
Alternative Investing: Wealthy investors and institutions now keep part of their capital in unconventional investments like hedge funds. Why? What’s the advantage? You’ll hear from Mark Yusko, CEO at Morgan Creek Capital Management. Mark’s firm manages billions for top endowments, pension funds, and high net worth investors.
"I attend the conference to understand what’s going on in the world and to understand what could happen. These conferences are stimulating intellectual events that make you think."
"I’ll admit I was somewhat skeptical when you claimed it was the “best conference,” but after last year I couldn’t praise SIC 2014 enough to my colleagues."
"Every presenter [at SIC] held my interest and I learned several new facts or insights from each. The mix of speakers was excellent."
"At SIC, one comes to expect the high caliber speakers and presenters but I am always impressed by the caliber attendees as well. They ask tough, challenging questions. I’m never quite sure who is the student and who is the teacher when I go to SIC. Every investor will benefit from SIC. Investors who want to win should go every year."
"SIC is an event I've travelled to many time from my base in Hong Kong. It is a premier economic conference—one I consider among the industry's best. This is due not only to high caliber of my fellow speakers but also of the attendees of SIC. Every investor should go to John Mauldin’s conference once in their life, if not every year!"
"John Mauldin's Strategic Investment Conference is an annual event I do not miss. I've not only presented at the past 6 SICs but attended the entire event each time. The faculty always consists of an impressive collection of the financial industry's best. Each year I leave with numerous thought-provoking insights and investing ideas."
