Some of the biggest development projects in the USA are being paid for by foreign money, while Europe struggles to hold together as an economic and political bloc. The West has gone hat-in-hand to the emerging Eastern powers, looking for financial support at a time of high debt and extreme economic duress. From Turkey to the Arab world, eyes are turning east for guidance on where the future stands. With more than two decades of travelling across the globe interviewing some of the leading names in politics and business, Riz Khan has witnessed the transformation of the global market place to where countries such as China and India hold the key to the door of the 21st Century. As the author of Alwaleed: Businessman, Billionaire, Prince (2005) Khan witnessed firsthand the business relationship between the USA and its largest individual investor - a Royal Saudi entrepreneur, sitting in on meetings between Prince Alwaleed and former U.S. Presidents, captains of industry such as Steve Jobs, and a host of leading Western figures. As outsourcing of jobs and a lack of opportunities dominates the America's ailing economy, Riz Khan examines where the West has gone wrong... and the real opportunities being missed.

Lord Mervyn King (Exclusively WSB)

Former Governor of the Bank of England Lord Mervyn King engages in a lively conversation on the key issues affecting the global recovery—and what levers are still available to ensure that world markets stabilize in the wake of an uneven period of recession around the globe. Whether discussing the role of central banking as part of the broader economy, regulation and reform or what lies ahead for the global economy, Lord King offers candid and in-depth responses to audience questions detailing a period of great change at home and abroad. His knowledge of European politics and economics as well as financial, economic and political history provides a rich context for understanding the world today.

Dr. Kocherlakota can touch upon the following:

  • The financial crisis and the reaction by the Federal Reserve and Congress
  • The Great Recession and the response by the Federal Reserve and Congress
  • How the recovery was surprisingly strong
  • How the recovery was surprisingly weak and is there room for improvement using monetary/fiscal stimulus or not?

Donald Kohn (Exclusively WSB)

With candor, foresight and an unrivaled reputation for integrity earned from his four decades at the Fed, Donald Kohn engages in a lively discussion based on the economic issues of the day. Whether discussing regulation, monetary policy, central banking or explaining what the events of the last decade mean for our economic future, Kohn thoughtfully answers audience questions and customizes his presentation to the issues that matter most to your organization.

Donald Kohn (Exclusively WSB)

The recovery from the deep global recession has proven disappointingly sluggish, especially in the United States and in many other industrialized economies. The necessity for balance sheet repair across the world, the beginnings of the correction of fiscal imbalances, and slowdowns in global growth have interacted with heightened uncertainty about fiscal and regulatory plans in the U.S. to hold back spending and hiring and the result has been a slow slog from a deep hole. An esteemed economic leader who has worked side by side with Paul Volcker, Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke, Donald Kohn brings his experience in monetary policy to explaining the actions of the Federal Reserve and he offers clear insight on the necessary deployment of monetary, fiscal and regulatory policies in correcting the economic excesses of the past and building a more prosperous future.

One of the most important issues facing the U.S. is the savings and wealth of individuals. Offering insights gleaned from two decades on Wall Street, and running two of the largest wealth management businesses in the world, Sallie Krawcheck offers an insider perspective into what works and what doesn’t in investing, saving and navigating Wall Street. In this talk, she points to conventional wisdom that no longer works, continuing areas of risk in the industry and a path forward for the industry and for navigating the industry.

The wealth management business is the subject of much commentary by industry pundits…a good portion of it wrong. The business is in many ways stronger than conventional wisdom would have it—but faces some significant obstacles and headwinds that if not addressed will have a meaningful impact on the business (as well as its cousins, the asset management and research businesses). Having run two of the largest wealth management businesses in the world, Sallie Krawcheck offers insider insights, many counterintuitive, into the business that financial services professionals will find useful as they participate in, partner with or serve that business.

As a top-ranked research analyst, a chief financial officer and senior manager in financial services over the past 20 years, Sallie Krawcheck has an unmatched perspective on the financial services industry. It is an industry whose future is uncertain, given stepped-up regulation, populist anger, an unfavorable operating environment and the increasing importance of technology. Unraveling the secular from the merely cyclical is challenging but crucial, both for the industry, as well as for the broader economy. Krawcheck does so with an insider’s knowledge and an analyst’s perspective.

The U.S. is in the midst of a financial planning crisis and nowhere more so than among women. Women live on average six years longer than men, but save just two-thirds as much for retirement. The causes are widespread, from earning less than men at every stage of their careers to outsourcing financial management to the men in their lives.

This talk can be tailored to women’s groups looking for how to engage on this, or to financial services firms who see this as a business opportunity:
For women’s groups – Krawcheck brings practical advice and tips, learned both from her business background, as well as from her own personal experience, for women at every stage of their lives.
For businesses – The business opportunity that this presents is significant, but it’s not as easy as putting a pink bow on the checking account. Many firms have failed in the pursuit of women. Krawcheck offers insights into this important and growing market, which derive from her business as well as her personal experiences.
