Special 20th Anniversary Strategic Investment Conference

Strategic Investment Conference 2024

Into the Storm

The #1 Conference for
Professional and Individual Investors

For 20 years I've had the privilege of assembling the brightest minds and foremost experts for this conference. As we mark the 20th year of the SIC, you'll be introduced to new features, but more importantly, you’ll walk away from SIC 2024 with clarity and a path forward.”

John Mauldin,

Mauldin Economics

As we approach our 20th Strategic Investment Conference (SIC), we stand at a historic crossroads of converging cycles—economic shifts, geopolitical instability, and technological forces—reshaping markets against the backdrop of a critical US election.

It reminds me of 2008, because then we were in the middle of a crisis, and you could just tell things were changing. Today, we may not be in a crisis, at least not yet, but the stakes are just as high.

Do markets go even higher from here? When will the debt truly begin to matter? Add up the questions and you get a heavy uncertainty of "What do we do?" It’s visceral, you can feel it.

But amidst uncertainty and chaos, there is opportunity. As resilient investors, we must lean into the storm...

Join us for five insightful and thought-provoking days at this year’s SIC.

At the 20th annual SIC, our faculty of esteemed experts will share their decades of wisdom and insights into how they’re navigating these unfolding economic and political cycles.

Here’s what you get with your SIC 2024 Virtual Pass:

  • 5 full days of high-level presentations, expert panels, and fireside chats with our expert speakers

  • High-quality audio and video recordings of all sessions to revisit any time you’d like, on all your devices.

  • Full transcripts of each session, session recaps with key takeaways, and presenter slides (as available).

  • NEW For SIC 2024! For the first time ever, interact directly with John Mauldin and others via the conference platform. Join real-time discussions with your peers and other professionals during the conference.

Our Panels and Fireside Chats Quick breakdown of our highly anticipated panels

Featured Panel

Will Bulls Or Bears Control 2024?

Dr. Ed Yardeni and Peter Boockvar
Moderator: Ed D’agostino

Join two incredibly prolific minds as they talk about the markets and the macro environment. This isn’t a "bull vs. bear debate" but a conversation about how the markets are working in the macro environment. What is the Fed really thinking? How is the economy really doing? How can a market sustain another 15–20 trillion dollars’ worth of debt over the next 10 years? How will it all play out?

Panel - Will Bulls Or Bears Control 2024?

Featured Panel

Competing Theories Of Cycles: Where We Are Now And What Comes Next?

Neil Howe, Peter Turchin and George Friedman
Moderator: John Mauldin

Multiple theories about cycles are converging as we speak... some even predict a significant crisis ahead. This isn’t a discussion about doom and gloom. These cycles operate on different timelines, but they all signal upheaval ahead. Whether it’s the 4th Turning, or debt, or rising tensions between socio-economic classes, they will all collide between now and the end of this decade.

Panel - Competing Theories Of Cycles: Where We Are Now And What Comes Next?

Featured Panel

China: Risks, Opportunities, And Challenges

Lyric Hughes Hale, Louis Gave and Emily De La Bruyère
Moderator: Ed D’Agostino

China is in a period of real, lasting change. The path China pursued to dramatically grow its economy has reached a dead end, creating a host of significant problems: population declines, concerns over "dual use" technologies, and government control. All are critical matters you need to understand to know what comes next for China.

Panel - China: Risks, Opportunities, And Challenges

Featured Discussion

AI in 2024: Is AI Underhyped or Overblown?

Joe Lonsdale and John Mauldin

Founder of Palantir and managing partner at 8VC, Joe Lonsdale is one of the most important leaders we should be listening to on artificial intelligence. Joe is prolific and entrepreneurial-minded, and you’ll be blown away by the breadth of his knowledge and insights during this discussion on AI.

Featured Panel

The Future Of Education

Pano Kanelos and special guests
Moderator: John Mauldin

Among the most important cultural issues future generations face is how education is changing before our very eyes. Graduates from elite programs and institutions are becoming unhireable. One of the things that emerges from the other side of the 4th Turning is a new paradigm in education: chaos and turbulence in the short term, but a cultural shift like no other in the long term. You won’t want to miss this conversation.

Panel - The Future Of Education

Featured Panel

Conflict Driven Capex: The Investment Implications of Dual-use Technology

Marvin Barth, Karim Hijazi and Erik Bethel
Moderator: Renè Aninao

Renè Aninao will be joined by his guests, two venture capitalists in the technology space with a focus on "dual use" technology. In our hyper-advanced world, certain components can be used for multiple purposes—but what are the defense and security implications of such tech? Renè’s panel will uncover which technologies are going to have the most impact on the commercial and military spaces.

Panel - The Rapidly Changing World Of Defense Technology

Featured Panel

Biotech And Longevity Research: Separating Fact From Fiction

Dr. Michael Roizen and special guests
Moderator: John Mauldin

Dr. Michael Roizen is one of the premier anti-aging doctors in the world and his panel will unpack the latest in medicine, technology, longevity, and aging. You’ll be excited to attend this panel and hear from some of the world's leading experts in aging-related research.
