This Saturday (2-17-12) I will be a guest speaker at an annual student investment event. The Texas Investment Portfolio Symposium event, (TIPS) that brings together students from various universities in Texas and surrounding states, wishing to further their skills in portfolio management, and investment analysis, occurs this Saturday.
This year’s headline guest speaker, Dr. Harvey Rosenblum, executive VP of research at the Dallas Fed, should make for an interesting outlook on the current economic situation and trends along with an inspiration to the students.
I will be speaking alongside my fellow wonderful portfolio manager, friend, and co-organizer of the TIPS event, Leah Bennet, of King Investment Advisors. Given our theme “In the Trenches of Private Wealth Management with Leah and John” the event should be great fun.
On Tuesday, as I had a less than quiet Valentines day lunch with my 1st grade daughter, along with 75+ other kids, I could envision our collective future society and innovators in the next couple of decades. This Saturday will bring the same thoughts, except with a shorter time line for many of these students.
It is great to give back, and an honor to be asked to share knowledge with such a great group of individuals and students.
Have a Great Day!
