New York, NY – On Thursday, September 18, the Museum of American Finance will host a talk, exhibit tour and book signing with Ken Winans, author of Investment Atlas. The program will be held from 5:30 – 7:00 pm at the Museum, located at 48 Wall Street in Lower Manhattan.

Ken Winans, a renowned investment analyst and president of Winans International, is a frequent guest of television and radio shows, and is the senior market commentator on Los Angeles’ most popular business news radio station, CBS affiliate KNX. Winans has had much of his investment research published by leading magazines and newspapers and is the author of Preferreds: Wall Street’s Best Kept Income Secret and Investment Atlas.

Investment Atlas is an artistic, colorful reference book that has been written with one objective: to make sure investors are armed with useful information about the performance and characteristics of stocks, bonds, commodities, real estate and collectibles since 1800. The book reviews the surprising reactions of investors to triumphant and catastrophic events that have confronted mankind throughout the ages such as wars, monumental peacetime achievements, natural and man-made disasters, and government actions (i.e., interest rates, taxes and regulations) in reaction to these situations. Similar to how a traveler uses a road atlas to learn about his destination and avoid getting lost, Investment Atlas aims to help the investor be a profitable user of investment history, not a victim of it.

This event is free and open to the public. For information or reservations contact Lindsay Seeger at 212-908-4110 or lseeger@financialhistory.org. Working members of the press should contact Kristin Aguilera at 212-908-4695 or kaguilera@financialhistory.org to confirm attendance.
