The Evolution of Investment Management: The Cost of Constraints

Dr. Myron Scholes, Nobel Laureate in Economics in 1997, will discuss his new research about the failure in our current investment profession to focus too much on beating the benchmark. He will talk to us about considering the implications of dynamic investing on the compound returns to an investor which will ultimately make their retirement better. There will be a Q&A moderated by USF’s Professor Ludwig Chincarini.


Myron Scholes is the Frank E. Buck Professor of Finance, Emeritus, at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences, and co-originator of the Black-Scholes options pricing model.
