Help us put Harry Markowitz on the hot seat
|Apr 28th, 2009 | Filed under: Featured Post | By: Alpha Male||
Anyone who has ever taken a finance course is likely familiar with the name Harry Markowitz. The Nobel Prize winner is widely credited with developing the framework upon which much of modern portfolio theory is based.
What you may not know is that Markowitz is still very active in the finance profession both as an academic and as a consultant. He currently teaches at the University of California San Diego and advises a plethora of firms. On May 11th, he’s one of three Nobel Laureates who will be addressing institutional investors and hedge fund managers at the Global Absolute Return Congress (Global ARC) in San Francisco.
As a co-chair of this event, I have been tasked with interviewing Markowitz and finding out his views on the past two years in financial markets. I’ve got a few ideas, but I need your help. Please send me any questions you might have for the Professor. An affable and relaxed kind of guy, Markowitz has encouraged me to come up with some hum-dingers for him. So please don’t hold back. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks in advance!
