Preparing for the Next Black Swans
The year 2011 will most certainly be remembered for its Black Swan events, including the spreading unrest in the Middle East and the earthquake in Japan. Money managers need to be prepared for unexpected events as they position their investments across asset classes.
The Bloomberg Money Managers Conference will bring together mutual fund, hedge fund and private equity investors to consider events that could rock the markets, portfolio strategies for managing the unforeseen and the future of actively-managed investing.
John Osbon will be a panelist in the 12:30 pm session: THE SAFEST INVESTMENT. In a chaotic world, what do money managers believe to be the safest bet? Dividend-paying stocks? Canadian government debt? Gold? The panel of experts will share their viewpoints on safe investments and when they should be utilized.
