At the Podium

Drawing on his years of Wall Street and investor experience, Steve gives audiences a greater understanding of the 2008 financial crisis—why it happened and why most people never saw it coming. As a portfolio manager, Steve still works in the financial industry and shares what has changed in the field since 2008. He will also discuss why growth in the United States was and remains so anemic and how this is an aftereffect of the crisis. Through real-life examples, attendees will leave with a new understanding of the housing and banking markets.

His remarks were succinct but candid, and his open and approachable demeanor were a refreshing change to the usual stale, prepared remarks many presenters tend to deliver. His sense of humor was much appreciated and our crowd responded with tremendous enthusiasm and a level of engagement I have not seen with any other keynote to date.

About Steve Eisman

With over 20 years of investment experience, Steve Eisman is one of the most knowledgeable and respected analysts on Wall Street today. Eisman started his career at Oppenheimer & Co., one of Wall Street’s largest firms, where he was ranked as an All-Star Analyst by both Institutional Investor and The Wall Street Journal on multiple occasions. He later served as Partner and Senior Portfolio Manager at FrontPoint Financial Services Fund, where he made the biggest impact of his career. These events are chronicled in Michael Lewis’s 2010 book The Big Short, which tells the story of the unlikely investors who predicted the 2008 crisis; Steve Carell portrays Eisman in the 2015 film adaptation of Lewis’s book.
