The speakers included Ralph J. Acampora, managing director at Knight Equity Markets; Richard Bernstein, chief U.S. strategist and head of the investment strategy group at Merrill Lynch; Ian Bremmer, founder and president of the Eurasia Group; Stephen S. Roach, managing director and chief economist at Morgan Stanley; Liz Ann Sonders, chief investment strategist at Charles Schwab & Co. Inc.; Jason DeSena Trennert, managing partner and chief investment strategist at Strategas Research Partners, and David A. Wyss, chief economist at Standard & Poor’s.
