IFA Webinar RECORDING: Market Crashes! Forecasts and False Prophets (Recording date 9 November 2016)

(PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL BE SENDING YOU A LINK TO THE RECORDED VIDEO. THIS IS NOT A LIVE WEBINAR)

Presenter: Ben Brinkerhoff Consilium

For as long as there have been markets there have been forecasts saying that markets are going to collapse. The problem is that so few people keep track of these bad forecasts to show how poor it is to follow this advice.

Fortunately, an analyst in the US has done just that. IN this webinar we take a look this analysis and look at “A Visual History of Market Crash Predictions”.

The next time your client is tempted to quote a market forecast, perhaps you can take a moment to take the lessons from this research.

We know markets will go up and down, but we don’t know when and we’re happy to report that no one else knows either! But fortunately that has almost nothing to do with your service to your clients! Read almost any of Warren Buffett’s annual reports. He’s the most successful investor of all time and he’ll proudly tell you he can’t time the market, and never tries. Twenty years ago, the broad market was about one fourth of where it is now; 30 years ago it wasn’t even a tenth of where it is now. For people with your clients’ time generally 30 years or more – that’s what’s really important. It’s not just that no one can time the market, it’s that you don’t need to.

Individual booking - $29.00 GST inclusive.
