Exciting news! Our first Evidence-Based Investing Conference in New York City was a resounding success. We are doing it again, hosting the 2nd annual EBI conference on November 2nd in NYC (early registration now open).
Last year was a full day of brilliant speakers, thoughtful panels, fireside chats and an opportunity to meet lots of fabulous people. 2017 version is looking like another monster event.
We have confirmed the first group of keynote speakers — it is looking like another killer lineup — with more announcements coming soon!
