    Echo Chambers: How They Hurt Returns, and the Benefits of Diverse Perspectives in Research

    Mar 29, 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM (ET)
    Actively seeking diverse viewpoints may improve returns when investing in stocks. Investing according to an “echo chamber” that reproduces and reinforces prior opinions, however, can severely drag on performance. New research by Joey Engelberg, Will Mullins, and J. Anthony Cookson shows investors tend not to seek information that challenges their perceptions. Instead, they choose to disproportionately consume information from other investors who share their beliefs. Join us Wednesday, March 29th, when we welcome Joseph E. Engelberg, Ph.D., Chief Research Officer at Counterpoint Mutal Funds, when he presents this thought-provoking presentation.

    Asset and Risk Allocation: Building Resilient Portfolios for the Future

    May 2 - 3, (ET)
    Global financial markets in this decade have been marked by tremendous upheaval, transitions, and the reversal of market trends that had endured for 40 years. Investors have been challenged by rising rates, market re-pricings, supply/demand imbalances, sticky inflation, and increasingly restrictive monetary policies. One economic regime has ended, and another has begun, which is why asset allocation, active management, diversification, and risk management matter more than ever. Join us for the CFA Institute Asset and Risk Allocation conference, where these issues will be addressed, and distinguished asset owners, investment managers, researchers, and policymakers will share insight for navigating global risks and exploring investment opportunities. The overall objective of the conference is to help investors enhance their asset, strategy, and risk allocation decisions while meeting investment objectives and improving client outcomes against the backdrop of a changing global economic environment.

Speaker Opportunities

CFA Society Baltimore offers many unique events throughout the year that are attended by hundreds of investment management professionals. These gatherings are invaluable ways for you and your organization to share your knowledge of, and passion for, excellence in investment management.
The Society welcomes dynamic speakers who can offer solution-oriented expertise on issues facing investment management professionals and leaders. By presenting at one of CFA Society Baltimore's many events throughout the year (as a sole presenter or panelist), you have a special opportunity to connect with your colleagues, share concrete knowledge, and discuss big ideas. CFA Society Baltimore is open to sessions that are creatively structured to take advantage of the power of peer interaction.
Corporate members are encouraged to co-present with others from different firms to offer multiple perspectives on a given topic. While being a CFA Society Baltimore member does not guarantee a speaking slot, preference is given to society members over non-members, and CFA charterholders over non-charterholders, when selecting presenters.
If you would like to become a potential speaker at CFA Society Baltimore events, please contact Robyn Osten at [email protected]
