This episode features two guests. The first is Paul Smith, who was previously the President and CEO of the CFA Institute. Paul has more than 25 years of relevant financial services leadership experience in many aspects of the investment management industry.
The second is Chris Cannon, who is the Chief Investment Officer of FirsTrust, an RIA in Daytona Beach, Florida. He is also a board member and the Advocacy Chair for the CFA Society of Orlando.
In this podcast, Smith covers the current mood in Hong Kong (where he resides) and what he expects to happen when social distancing ceases there, what challenges COVID-19 give the CFA Institute and individual societies, why it is critically important today to avoid the illusion of precision, and what he thinks people should learn while staying at home.
