“Financial markets send messages. Heed them because forewarned is forearmed with respect to future economic, political and geo-political events.”
- Ron Insana


As the world works to recover from the paralyzing effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, Ron Insana has been connecting the dots to give his audience a clearer idea of what the economic future might look like. As a pioneering financial journalist, Ron has covered the most important economic stories of our lifetime over his nearly four decades on television. He even won an Emmy Award for his reporting about 9/11. Currently senior analyst and commentator with CNBC where he also served as anchor and correspondent since 1991, Ron also hosts The Market Score Board Report, a thrice-daily nationally syndicated radio program. As a financial journalist, Ron stands alone as someone who ran his own hedge fund – experience that makes his insights all the more valuable. He’s also written for Money magazine, USA Today, and authored four bestselling books on investing and reading the financial markets. In Ron’s speeches, he looks at how Wall Street, Main Street and Washington are intersectingand translates the market signals and political maneuvers into actionable information everyone can understand and use to protect what they have and navigate an uncertain future.

As the world seeks to regain some semblance of pre-COVID economic and political equilibrium, so many questions remain. Certainly, some things will bounce back – but which ones? Will others be forever changed (think work from home, the influence of new digital trends, our travel and entertainment, and social lives)? None of this means the U.S. won’t ultimately recover. In fact, with the proper policies and incentives, the economy of the next 50 years could be, quite conceivably, far stronger than the economy of the last 50 years. Against that backdrop, then, how should business leaders and investors plan intelligently for an America that may re-globalize, re-engage its allies, and reject the projection of military power among its adversaries from Russia, Iran, and North Korea to its main competitors like China? Ron Insana offers audiences a top-down view of the world as it will likely evolve in the months ahead while recognizing the bottom-up developments that will affect the day-to-day lives from Main Street to Wall Street.


How can you protect what you have and find new opportunities in this investment climate? Every day the world's markets are speaking -- shouting, really -- boldly predicting the future. In fact, they are reflecting information not yet revealed to the general public. In ancient times, investors and merchants met to buy and sell goods - and to exchange information and gossip. This information is reflected in the prices charged for those goods, whether it was news of war in a far-flung region that will cut off the gold supply or a crop failure that will make wheat scarce. Today, tradable securities are the proxies for goods and services and act in exactly the same fashion. In order to understand what the markets are saying, you have to know how to listen to and interpret the messages they are sending. In this talk Ron Insana shows audiences how to understand the signals put out by the markets, and protect their economic future.


Navigating the post-Coronavirus world will continue to be a whiplash-inducing experience. The new technologies and medical breakthroughs that are coming will make things even more challenging. 5G, AI, robotics, machine learning, regenerative medicine, and more are all racing towards us. Soon, mountains of data will come more forcefully than ever, changing even further what is possible in business. The biggest change of all is how quickly new technologies become ubiquitous. Ron looks at the most impactful new technologies and the impact they’ll have. They include experts who are already working on creating human organs from stem cells printed on 3-D printers…and researchers working to stop the aging clock altogether. Experts believe that among millennials, the first person to live to 150 has already been born. Are we ready for that future?



“Simply put, we could not be more pleased!  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.”
