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

At 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 shared 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).

The Future Of Education

Pano Kanelos and John Mauldin

Among the most important cultural issues future generations face is how education is changing before our eyes. John Mauldin interviewed Pano Kanelos, CEO of the newly formed University of Austin, the first-of-its-kind university encouraging a wide range of ideas, challenging the prevailing “mono-think” in most higher education institutions.

Featured Panel

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

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

Renè Aninao brought a fascinating panel together to discuss the risks of “dual-use” technology. They covered the very real risks of bad actors using sophisticated cyberattacks to generate kinetic results. As we move more and more to an electrified model of defense, energy becomes that much more important, and he believes we have precious little time until we see kinetic tests of our ability to defend our system of government.

The Future Of Commercial Real Estate

Joseph Anthony, Russell L. Ingrum and Todd Rich 
Moderator: Olivier Garret

SIC 2024 Final Panel: “Into The Storm”

Felix Zulauf, John Mauldin and William White
Moderator: David Bahnsen

Concluding the 20th annual SIC, John and faculty come together for a reflective final panel. A sober discussion on geopolitics that could trigger a financial crisis and an end to US hegemony. While we might be coming out of an “age of plenty” to an “age of scarcity,” one faculty member pointed out the US’s long-term performance noted no viable alternatives for investors. As John Mauldin put it, this panel was “must-see SIC.”
