CFA Society Israel – Insights from Inside The Pentagon: Equity and Bond Markets in Crisis

By Professor Joel Litman

Chairman and CEO of Valens Research and the Founder and Chief Investment Strategist of Altimetry Financial Research


Sunday, 26th February 2023



9:30 AM – 10:30 AM GMT+2/IST

Be ready to rethink your investments for 2023… as one market heads for another lost decade.

Join us for Professor Joel Litman’s first-ever event in Israel, and the kickoff event of the year for the CFA Society Israel! This event is not one to be missed as we discuss how to navigate the current market panic sell-off and find hidden opportunities in the chaos. 

The mainstream media can’t wait to slap the word “crisis” onto anything that will drive knee-jerk viewership to their broadcasts and websites: 

Inflation crisis, debt crisis, food crisis, oil crisis, geopolitical crisis, and of course, the ultimate crisis for the media to sell their advertisements and banner ads… “War.”

The current market panic sell-off is creating a massive opportunity in some markets that smart, fundamental investors simply cannot pass up. Meanwhile, one massive investment area is headed for a deep bear market that could last more than a decade. 

But for quite some time, Prof. Litman’s research and findings have also been presented to The Pentagon, FBI, U.S. Marine Corps War College, CFA Societies worldwide, and 9 OUT OF THE TOP 10 MONEY MANAGERS GLOBALLY.

Sponsored by FA Alpha, this special event for CFA Society Israel members and affiliates will highlight the findings from decades of research into how and when markets react to global market crises, and what factors tell us when to buy again.
