About Meredith Whitney

Hailed as “The Oracle of Wall Street” by Bloomberg, Meredith Whitney has been ahead of the curve during America’s largest credit crisis since the Great Depression. Whitney’s rise to international prominence was triggered in October 2007, when she made one of the most controversial and highly publicized calls in Wall Street history. A Wall Street veteran of over 15 years, Whitney’s career has been defined by her bold predictions which have garnered global attention. Now focused on the U.S. recovery, Ms. Whitney has layered her expertise on the financial industry with a deep mining of the fiscal and legal frameworks of the states to identify what she believes will be the next American super-cycle of economic growth and investment opportunity.

In June 2013, Meredith Whitney published her highly anticipated first book, Fate of the States: The New Geography of American Prosperity. In it she delivers a sobering vision of the next few decades by exploring the consequences of roughly half the country being stuck in a vicious cycle of decline while the other half enjoys a virtuous circle of growth. Whitney is currently the Managing Partner (and founder) of Kenbelle Capital, LP—a long-short US equity fund launched in Nov. 2013.
