I must say, I’m struggling to contain my excitement. The inaugural Evidence-Based Investing Conference, to be held on November 15th, 2016, in New York City.
It’s being organised by Ritholtz Wealth Management, a fast-growing firm best known for its team of top investment bloggers — writers like Barry Ritholtz, Josh Brown, Ben Carlson and Michael Batnick, all of whom feature fairly regularly on The Evidence-Based Investor.
Announcing the event, Josh Brown said this:
For the investing business, the Age of Enlightenment is now upon us.
Evidence-based investing is no longer the future, it is now the present. Every major asset management firm, old and new, large and small, is grappling with this reality and working to find their place in it. Every financial advisor with an eye toward longevity and growth is adapting to the power of this message.
The era of forecasts, predictions, price targets and stock tips (has) ended. And in its place, something better, smarter and more robust has been born.
EBI is a financial mega-trend, sweeping through the industry and effecting powerful change on the way we allocate assets, choose managers, define goals and track performance.
(The inaugural Evidence-Based Investing Conference) is the big one. I have never been more excited about an event in my career.
