Eminent Speaker Russell Napier: 21 lessons from financial history

Thursday 21 April 2022 | 18:30 - 19:30 | Eminent Speaker Series, Evening Event

Please note, this will be an in-person event.

Every investor lives through at least one age but sometimes also a change of age. The modern investor is faced with just such a transition with only limited knowledge of how financial markets have worked when different structures have been in place.

In this session Russell Napier, FSIP, Co-Founder of the Investment Research Portal ERIC, will focus on what mistakes investors currently make when they assume that the past quarter of a century provides any guidance as to how financial markets will work for the next quarter of a century.

Where recordings are made, these are a member benefit that are accessed through the member-only platform, CFA UK Discover.


Registration: 18:00

Event: 18:30 - 19:30

Networking: 19:30 - 20:30

CPD Points: 1.00
