Building on the crowds we had in Toronto and Montreal, AIMA Canada is happy to partner with the Vancouver and Calgary CFA Societies to present Nassim Nicolas Taleb, author of Fooled by Randomness and The Black Swan, at luncheons in each city.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb is considered by many to be the premier specialist of rare events ("black swans") and has advised heads of states, top financial institutions, and various central banks on tail risks. He is the author of Fooled by Randomness, The Black Swan, and The Bed of Procrustes: Philosophical & Practical Aphorisms, which have been translated into over 32 languages. Being a veteran option trader, Nassim has held senior trading and managing director positions at various investment banks. Currently, he is a Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at New York University Polytechnic Institute and holds an academic position at the London Business School.
