Talks and media

As an unmitigated narcissist I will happily show up at your conference or event and talk nonsense for free (well, free + expenses). I will also be interviewed or dash off a few hundred words for your publication or website at no cost to yourself, if I believe it will give more people a better understanding of the world of systematic financial decision making.

Forthcoming

  • I've been invited again to speak at the Thalesians, 21st November 2018
  • Planning to speak at a Python conference in January 2019 (Details to follow)

    1. Harriman's new Book of Investing Rules.I only just got to see the full list of other writers. There is one (very obviously NOT you) who I find so distasteful and foolish had I known of his contribution I would not have written my chapter. I don't know of all the other writers or their careers but the one I refer to is a salesman of the worst order. Pity. A mistake in my view b Harriman.

      1. I guess you can always exorcise his contribution from your free copy using a pair of scissors and/or a black marker pen.
