Financial History's Lessons for Present-Day Investors
Elroy Dimson, FSIP, PhD
The IMF expects the coronavirus pandemic to bring the worst global economic contraction since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Such extreme market movements should prompt investors to study past crises for lessons that apply to the present day. Elroy Dimson, renowned financial historian and author of the CFA Institute Research Foundation book, Financial Market History: Reflections on the Past for Investors Today, puts the current market volatility into a historical context in this online, interactive event. Participants consider past setbacks and hear Professor Dimson’s inferences on what investors might anticipate for the future.
