February 18, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

For All Students:

Through a series of counterintuitive concepts and contemporary case studies based on her firsthand experience of investing in 50 markets around the globe, Rupal Bhansali describes in her new book, The Need for Non-Consensus Investing, how to perform differentiated fundamental research to uncover mispriced stocks. Bhansali candidly shares her failures and mistakes as well as her successes and triumphs.

Bhansali weaves in her personal journey, recounting how she overcame the odds to succeed in a male-dominated profession and offering advice on breaking the glass ceiling. Non-Consensus Investing is a must-read for anyone who seeks to understand why active investing has disappointed and how it can succeed.

Analysts and amateurs, fiduciaries and financial advisors, aspiring and practicing money managers, as well as students or investment enthusiasts are all invited to attend.

This talk is followed by a reception. Registration opens at 5:30 p.m. The first 100 attendees will receive a copy of the book.
