Larry Swedroe, a nationally renowned guru for investment advisers across the country, will speak to Old Dominion University's Economics Club of Hampton Roads on Thursday, Nov. 14.

Swedroe, the author of 12 books, is principal and director of research at St. Louis-based Buckingham Asset Management, and director of research for The BAM ALLIANCE, a community of independent wealth management firms located throughout the United States. He will speak from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel.

The event is free for members of the Economics Club of Hampton Roads, and $40 for non-members. For reservations, contact Katrina Davenport at the Economics Club, at 683-5138 or kdavenpo@odu.edu. On-site registration for the event begins at 11:30 a.m.

Swedroe's books include "The Quest for Alpha: The Holy Grail of Investing," an insightful commentary on the practice of investing, in which he reminds readers that there are no "magic" techniques for investing wisely, no substitute for diligence and research.

Swedroe's nationally published blog, Wise Investing, offers a range of advice to asset managers. Swedroe writes comprehensively about global issues and common-sense money management. See the blog HERE.

The Nov. 14 lecture is sponsored by WealthQuest Financial Services and Wall, Einhorn and Chernitzer.

The Economics Club of Hampton Roads is an organization for business and government executives and community leaders who share an interest in the practical implications of economic principles, trends and events. It was established in 1991 as a community service by former ODU President James V. Koch, and is administered by Gil Yochum, dean of the College of Business and Public Administration, under the supervision of an elected board.
