In addition to having the ideal insights in the financial markets, policies and global economic drivers, Ron Insana was truly a pleasure to be around and extremely gracious of his time with our conference attendees. He provided seemingly unlimited access to all attendees interested in speaking with him. He made this year’s conference the very best ever. I hope that he becomes a regular in our circuit of speakers at both the state level here in North Carolina, and perhaps also with NAIOP events in DC and throughout the country.

Trump 2017: From Washington to Wall Street

Now that Donald Trump is President, “Trumponomics” are the order of the day.

Counter to what the experts predicted (shock!), stocks sold off only briefly on election night and since then, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has made a succession of new all-time highs. So what is Wall Street telling us about Washington and how will Washington, or a Trump presidency, affect Wall Street? (and even Main Street?) If, indeed, the President rolls back 70% of all federal regulations, as promised, the first beneficiaries will be financials and pharma, banks and bio-tech. If tax rates are slashed, wealthy individuals and U.S. corporations with benefit big-league!

But there will be downsides to a Trump presidency, as well.

A trade war with Mexico and China could lead to a deep recession and intense pain for companies that either do business in those countries or rely on the international supply chain to obtain goods and services from around the world. There will likely be faster growth but more inflation. There may be higher rates and a new head of the Fed! The short-run reaction on Wall Street has been positive, but what about the long-run implications for Wall Street, Main Street and Washington?

Ron Insana does a deep dive into uncharted waters to help you navigate a new economy that may have islands of prosperity in what may well be very turbulent waters.


Five Factors Threatening Fortress America

Despite an unbridled optimism about America’s future, Ron Insana believes recent developments in the United States do raise concerns that the renewed ascent of the American economy could face some serious threats in the near and intermediate-term. In this presentation, Insana addresses these issues head on to ensure that corporations, financial firms, markets and even our government do not become complacent about risk. Complacency is the most pernicious enemy of progress, and with that in mind, he has outlined five factors for audience members to takeaway that he believes are necessary to acknowledge as the United States continues its recovery from the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.

They are:

  • Global Deflation
  • An Unfriendly Fed
  • A New Cold War/A New Hot War
  • A Loss of Energy
  • America’s Age of Austerity

All of these issues are simmering beneath the surface of an economic rebound, and Insana feels he would be remiss if he did not raise some cautionary flags to audience members in an effort to highlight the factors that could shake the very foundations of “Fortress America."

Field of Dreams

In a country suffering from post-traumatic economic stress, where 61% of Americans believe the next generation will be the first to have a lower standard of living than they themselves enjoyed, Ron Insana reminds Americans that the country is, and will always be, a “Field of Dreams”. America is a country that brings forth opportunities to all and constantly re-invents its ability to imagine and innovate. The United States leads the world in innovation, and innovation and entrepreneurialism create high-paying, value-added jobs. Insana knows that talking about the American Dream though is not enough. In this thought-provoking presentation, he dares Americans to reimagine the dream, re-build its foundations and re-direct its course. A financial expert, Insana offers unique perspectives and thoughtful analysis as he explores topics with the audience from conversations around energy independence and the latest technologies, to foreign investors and political leadership. He encourages the audience to rethink the world we live in and strive to update American systems to that the economy can grow at its fullest potential—and with that restore opportunity for today and for the future.


The telegraph, the telephone, the ticker tape, radio. TV and internet, AI and algorithms, have all been financed by Wall Street but have also profoundly affected the financial markets over the last century. And the pace of technological change is rapidly increasing and will likely have the most profound impact on financial markets in Wall Street history in the very near term.

It is ironic that the center of the financial universe, historically the provider of capital to disruptors, is in the midst of historic disruption itself.From the introduction of High Frequency Trading, enabled by ultra-high speed computing power, to the introduction of highly complex products, to automated advisory services, to new exchanges that use block-chain technology to speed transactions to a pace never seen before.

These massive changes challenge legacy financial firms who fail to adopt new technologies and adapt to a revolutionary new landscape. How do firms embrace change, utilize new technological tools and jump to the forefront of this latest technological revolution to enhance the client/company relationship and to meaningfully enhance results for the investors who rely on Wall Street to help them finance their ambitions, meet their daily financial needs and plan for an ever-increasing number of golden years for which they seek safety and security.

CNBC’s Ron Insana explores how the latest changes in technology can be harnessed, and not just financed by, Wall Street to prepare itself to interact with a new generation of investors who expect an entirely new level of service and success as their financial futures require.
