Asset Allocation 2.0: Investment Positioning for a Multi-Quarter Time Horizon
Richard Bernstein, voted #1 in the U.

The last time he spoke to an audience of this size in L. A. two years ago, Richards's insights were enormously practical and helpful to the bottom line. This year, he will let you in on Asset Allocation 2.0 and other critical insights.
