Did you ever hear the phrase, “What you don’t know can’t hurt you?” Nassim Nicholas Taleb, in his book, The Black Swan, postulates that it is exactly what we don’t know that can hurt us the most. The risks we need to be most concerned about are the risks we cannot identify or predict. Taleb calls these risks “Black Swans”. This session will discuss some historical “Black Swan” events and, more importantly, discuss how financial professionals and their organizations can prepare for a future we cannot even envision.
