With Irwin and Buzzy Geduld, John spearheaded its expansion into the third-largest Nasdaq market maker in the country. After the sale of the firm to Merrill Lynch in 2000, he devoted himself to R.M. Smythe & Co., the family auction firm dealing in antique stocks and bonds, bank notes, coins and autographs. After the stock market crash of 1987, John founded the Museum of American Finance to enhance public understanding of the capital markets.

Ken Winans on "What They Don’t Teach at Harvard: History as an Investment Tool"
Thursday, November 16, 2017 12:30 PM to 01:30 PM

We have all heard the phrase “history repeats itself.” Yet, very few people apply long-term history to the art and science of investing. There is no better example of this than how the majority of modern investors, the most knowledgeable and technologically advanced in history, mishandled the 50% stock market corrections during the dotcom bust and the Great Recession. Learn about time-tested investment tools from Ken Winans' award-winning financial history book, Investment Atlas II, and how to improve investment performance and reduce losses in future bull and bear markets.
