“The most interesting financial talker in America.”
-Steven Proffitt, National Public Radio PR
“One of the 15 Most Important Economic Journalists in the US”
“One of the brightest minds and irreverent voices on Wall Street today . . . truly is one Wall Street’s important thinkers and rising stars.”
-Stock Traders Almanac
“Wow. At our recent MillerQA housing market seminar, Barry conveyed to the audience a deep level of understanding of the economic issues of the day but more importantly presented them in an entertaining manner that they could both understand and take with them, a rare combination.”
-Jonathan Miller, President/CEO Miller Samuel
For the past few years, Barry Ritholtz has been entertaining, informing and provoking audiences across America and Europe. He appears at conferences, makes special presentations to investors, hedge fund managers, Congressman, Regulators, media, corporations, and universities around the world.
Ritholtz’ data driven discussions are accessible to the layperson, yet valuable to the most sophisticated hedge fund managers. His thought-provoking, contrarian and insightful analysis consistently receive the highest-rated reviews at events at which he speaks:
“Ritholtz has a huge reserve of information at his fingertips, and he is a terrific communicator. With candor and humor, he makes his points while respecting the intelligence of his audience. He is not afraid to go out on a limb, and he can never be accused of just following the pack. We are now bracing for general disappointment as all future speakers are measured against Ritholtz.
-Alice Agoos, President, Ryan’s Notes
“Barry Ritholtz’s presentation was an excellent blend of pure economic information and pure entertainment – no easy feat! As our opening keynote speaker, his commentary set the tone for discussions throughout our two-day No-Cal FPA 2010 conference. His charts and concepts were thought-provoking as well as enlightening. As financial advisors it was so beneficial to be able to take away numerous talking points to address the concerns of, and educate, our clients. Barry’s presentation was definitely one of the best that I’ve seen and heard in these ‘challenging’ times.”
-Laurie Nardone, Senior Consultant, Genworth Financial Wealth Management
President, Shira Ridge Wealth Management
Covering a broad variety of topics in an easy to understand and entertaining fashion, Ritholtz is a compelling speaker on subjects ranging to from stock markets to the the psychology of investing, how to understand the macro economy, and the flawed approach Human Beings take when it comes to risk. He fluently discusses how the modern economy collapsed, what led to the massive Federal bailouts of the financial system, and what is right and wrong about modern regulation. He has also moderated panels, interviews and group discussions.
“Many market observers predict tops and bottoms, but few successfully get their timing right. Jeremy Grantham and Barry Ritholtz sit in the latter category…”
--Dow Jones Market Talk
“With the benefit of hindsight, its easy to see you had to come into 2009 bearish, get bullish at the March lows, then stayed bullish all year . . . Few people were able to pull that off . . . Ritholtz was one of them. For the prescience of his market calls in 2009, he was awarded Yahoo Tech Ticker’s Guest of the Year award.”
