Your most urgent questions about the economic, financial, and (geo)political risks and profit opportunities answered
Right now, we are witnessing one of the biggest economic calamities of the past century.
Worldwide, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought economies to a standstill. Governments and central banks are taking emergency measures at never-before-seen levels. And no one knows what the long-term consequences may be.
Mark Grant, chief global strategist at B. Riley FBR and regular Mauldin Economics contributor, recently wrote,
We are peering into the void, of the great unknown, and trying to make sense of an array of data that doesn’t fit any economic models, because we have never been here before, and we don’t know how to model for economic conditions that have never existed before, in anyone’s lifetimes.
Models may not work. But it’s still possible to predict what will happen... and how to circumnavigate dangers and seize profit opportunities that open up in the markets.
That’s why we have brought together more than 30 of the most brilliant economists, asset managers, and political analysts for five days of information-packed sessions...
Watch more than 30 five-star speakers present their insights and deep-dive analysis on what is happening right now, what to expect, and what actions to take for financial gain and protection.
Here are some of the big-name faculty members you will see at the Virtual SIC 2020:
Leon Cooperman is chairman and CEO of Omega Advisors, is one of the most successful investors of our lifetime. He is a shining example of the American dream, an active philanthropist, and passionate defender of capitalism. He recently made the case for company bailouts in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic in order to avoid a huge surge in unemployment... a topic he surely will tell us more about at the Virtual SIC 2020.
Ian Bremmer is president and founder of GZERO Media. He hosts the weekly digital and broadcast show, GZERO World, where he explains the key global stories of the moment, sits down for an in-depth conversation with the newsmakers and thought leaders shaping our world, and takes your questions. Ian is also the president and founder of GZERO Media's parent company, Eurasia Group, the leading global political risk research and consulting firm.
Peter Diamandis is an engineer, physician, and entrepreneur, and is the founder and chairman of X Prize Foundation, as well as the cofounder and executive chairman of Singularity University. He believes that we'll see a complete transformation of the healthcare sector following the current crisis, with far greater roles for AI and telehealth.
Neil Howe is the managing director of demography at Hedgeye Risk Management, an independent financial research firm. As a historian and generational researcher, he co-authored the 1997 cult classic, The Fourth Turning, which listed a global pandemic as one trigger for a chain of events culminating in a major crisis. He sure will have a lot to say about the current state of affairs and what it may lead to in the coming years.
Doug Kass is the president of Seabreeze Partners Management, Inc. and currently serves as a guest host on CNBC's Squawk Box and a contributor to The Street's Real Money. Until 1996, he worked as senior portfolio manager at Omega Advisors, a $6 billion investment partnership, and became famous as a savvy investor and short seller. Doug believes that the recent poor performance of financial stocks is not a reason to panic but an exceptional profit opportunity. At the SIC, he will elaborate on this and other trade ideas and insights.
