|Robert Genetski, Ph.D.
Chief Economist/Investment Advisor
Advisor to the Board of Directors
One of the nation’s leading economists, premier interest rate forecasters and investment advisors, Dr. Genetski is a popular speaker to thousands of people at conferences and investor meetings around the world each year. He is recognized routinely by the media and his clients for his insights to economic, financial and investment matters on a micro and macro perspective.
Genetski is well known for his research and advocacy of classical economic principles. These principles provide a reliable guide to creating both a healthy economy and profitable investment opportunities. Dr. Genetski has conducted pioneering research into the role of taxes and their impact on economic prosperity.
In the early 1980s, he correctly forecast that tax cuts would end the nation’s economic malaise by boosting productivity and helping to reduce both inflation and interest rates. In 1989, Dr. Genetski correctly referred to the Japanese stock market as “a classic case of a speculative bubble waiting to burst.”
As a member of Blue Chip forecasters, Dr. Genetski has been commended on his ability to out-forecast the pack. He was listed on two separate occasions as the number one interest rate forecaster in the country, according to Institutional Investor Magazine and Blue Chip Financial Forecasts.
During the 1990s he gained a reputation as one of the most optimistic investment advisors in the nation, if not the world, for forecasting rapid growth, low inflation and record-breaking stock prices. During the course of his career Genetski has served as Senior Vice President and Chief Economist for a major Midwest Bank and has headed asset management, investment research, and investment banking operations.
Dr. Genetski earned his Ph.D. in economics from and has taught economics at New York University and at the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business. He has served on numerous Boards of Directors and writes a regular column for the Nikkei Financial Daily’s leading business newspaper.
