Plan sponsors are becoming increasingly aware of geopolitical risk and its impact on portfolio returns. Which is why, at the 2013 Global Investment Conference (April 9-11), geopolitical risk will be front and centre with keynote presenter, George Friedman, chief executive officer and founder of STRATFOR. He is the author of The New York Times bestseller The Next Decade: Where We've Been...and Where We're Going, which forecasts the major events and challenges that will test America and the American President over the course of the next decade. Dr. Friedman's previous book, The Next 100 Years: A Forecast for the 21st Century was also a New York Times bestseller and was published in over 20 languages.
His other books on warfare and intelligence have included America's Secret War, The Future of War and The Intelligence Edge. In addition, he has briefed the Australian Command and Staff College, Eglin Air Force Research Laboratory, U.S. Marine Corps Command and Staff College and many other military and government organizations. Major television and radio networks such as CNN, Fox News, and NPR frequently invite Dr. Friedman to appear as an international intelligence expert. He and STRATFOR have also been featured in cover stories in Barron's and in the UK's New Statesman. Dr. Friedman has been featured in Time Magazine, The New York Times Magazine and The Wall Street Journal. He is frequently quoted in The New York Times, Fortune, Newsweek, USA Today, the International Herald Tribune and many other publications.
