Wealth Management Magazine has an NCAA Tournament-themed thing going on where they pit important figures from the industry against each other in a bracket-style contest of influence. They asked me to write up the page for Rob Arnott of Research Affiliates. You’ve no doubt seen his name here on the blog over the years as his stuff has been highly influential.
Here’s what I had to say:
All around the hotel ballroom, jaws are dropping. The financial advisors who’ve come here for a free lunch along with an armload of investing platitudes are only actually getting the former. Because today’s speaker, Rob Arnott, doesn’t deal in platitudes. When he talks in front of a room full of investment professionals, the only thing they should know in advance is that they’re about to hear something very different.
