Income Inequality: The Secret Factor

“If the majority of people were right, the majority of people would be rich!” So says Wall Street investment visionary Peter Ricchiuti, who teaches audiences why “follow the herd” mentality rarely delivers long-term success when it comes to the markets. Focusing on what’s ahead for the economy and what financial markets are forecasting for your industry, Ricchiuti’s talks are as informative as they are fun.

Ricchiuti began his career at the investment firm of Kidder, Peabody & Co. in Boston and later managed more than $3 billion as the chief investment officer for the State of Louisiana. He currently teaches finance at Tulane University’s Freeman School of Business, where he has received numerous awards for his teaching style.

As a speaker, Ricchiuti has addressed about 1200 organizations in 47 states and several countries, talking to a wide-range of audiences including corporate executives, financial planners, RV dealers, insurance associations, tin can manufacturers, waterpark owners, and NFL players.

In 2014, The Financial Times published Ricchiuti’s first book, Stocks Under Rocks, and he currently hosts a popular weekly business program called Out To Lunch on National Public Radio in New Orleans. He has also been featured in/on The Wall Street Journal, BARRON’s, The New York Times, Bloomberg, CNBC, and The Nightly Business Report.

Ricchiuti served as a director of Amedisys, Inc., the nation’s largest home healthcare company, from 1997 to 2015. During this period, the stock rose by about 1000%.
