EBI Conference Notes – Bezos More Popular Than God

We were fortunate enough to attend the Evidence-Based Investing Conference (EBI) which took place in New York City on November 2nd, 2017. The second ever EBI conference was great. The mission of is devoted to “disciplined approach to asset management that combines the data we have from the past and present with honesty about the unknowable future. Where others would use forecasts, relationships or emotions to guide their decisions, practitioners of EBI would substitute facts, logic, and reason.

An investment conference devoted to using logic, reason, data, behavioral finance and trying to filter out all the other noise. There were great speakers like Jason Zweig at the conference. Below is a slide-deck of our notes. Note that this is for information only and while deemed reliable may contain mistakes.

Furthermore, this is not a transcription for legal and ethical reasons we did not want to transcribe it. Instead, we offer our notes on some of the key highlights and our analysis and takeaways on this thirty page or so document.

We hope you enjoy! Please send us feedback since we are considering doing more conference notes if the response is positive. Please send us feedback at support@valuewalk.com

  1. Keynote Presentation

Scott Galloway was the presenter of Keynote presentation. During the presentation he provided his own book “The Four”. Scott’s presentation focused on the four rider of modern technology, face book, Google, Apple and Amazon, starting with how each appeal to specific human instinct or organ.

Key Note:

How those four horsemen of modern tech appeal to an organ:

Google = Brain

Facebook = Love @ scale

Amazon = More (Never ending Wants)

Apple = XX appeal

The excellent information about Amazon was that more people have Amazon Prime than voted for the President. Even about 55% people are earning more than $50K compared to Amazon’s 58%. Attendance for the Church in a month is also lower than the Amazon. <
