In this seminar, I hope to take you on my personal journey of discovery and faith in investing and valuation,” said Professor Damodaran.

Nazem Basha, Chairman & CEO of Amwal Advisory Corp. and co-host of the conference said “Professor Damodaran is recognized worldwide, as an icon in the fields of Investments and Valuations. The success and feedback received on last year’s conference is a testament to that.”
