 2013 Spring Symposium

Investing in Markets, Society, and Ourselves: Views from Investment Masters
 
Old Cabell Hall Auditorium
Friday, April 26
9:00 a.m. to noon
Sponsored by the McIntire School of Commerce and the Contemplative Sciences Center
 
Four investors who consistently beat the market over more than 25 years discuss their philosophy and strategies for investing, giving, and personal development. Panel discussions will explore each of these three areas and highlight their importance in a well-rounded business and personal life.

In the first panel, John Griffin (Founder and President, Blue Ridge Capital), Paul Tudor Jones (Founder, Co-Chairman, Chief Investment Officer, and Controlling Principal, Tudor Investment Corporation), and Julian Robertson (Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Tiger Management L.L.C.) will discuss lessons from their careers regarding investing, the opportunities they see today, and future opportunities. They will also hear and comment on two student investment ideas.

For the second panel, these three panelists will be joined by McIntire Marketing Professor David Mick, who teaches a popular Wisdom and Well-Being course, and by Jeff Walker (retired Managing Partner, JPMorgan Partners; retired Vice Chairman, JPMorgan Chase & Co.) in a discussion of their involvement with and support for important global initiatives in areas such as poverty, global health, and education. They will also discuss their own unique strategies for personal development and how these strategies help them to live a more complete and fulfilled life.
