    Ian Abbott
    Abacus Financial Services, LLC
    Bill Barack
    Barack Capital Management

Many individual investors grasp the basic ideas of classical investment theory and modern portfolio management?translating principles into practice is often quite another matter. Why is it that so many private investors bail out of the market at exactly the wrong time? Is the only recourse to hire a professional money manager? Bert Ward will discuss an alternative approach that balances potential returns against inevitable risks. Using a few simple managed-risk strategies, Bert will illustrate how such a program works, how to practice its execution, how to incorporate fail-safes and how to develop realistic performance expectations. Following Bert, Ian Abbott will address the questions: Are we now at the precipice, at the brink of yet another collapse as happened in the chain reaction of crashes and mini-crashes that continued throughout the 1930s? Can you afford to watch the markets disintegrate without a plan to protect your assets from such threats? Trusting your nest egg to luck or blaming a ?bunch of crooks? won?t solve the problem. Finally, Bill Barack will read the economic and technical ?tea leaves? in a top-down look at what may be in store for our investing future. His thesis: If we get the current macro view right, then we can more accurately plan for our future.
