Jim Bianco to speak at Marquette University on January 31st to members of the Financial Management Association and Dr. Krause's AIM class

Dr. David Krause, AIM program director said, "I’m pleased to announce that Jim Bianco (MU '84), president of Bianco Research in Chicago, will be visiting campus soon. Details will be upcoming, but students are encouraged to save the afternoon on Tuesday, January 31st. The event will be held at the Raynor Library and invitations will be forthcoming before the beginning of the spring semester.”

The event will be held from 4-5 pm in the Raynor Library Conference Center.

Jim Bianco is the president of Bianco Research, L.L.C., located in Chicago Illinois, which was founded in 1998. Bianco Research is an affiliate with Arbor Research & Trading, Inc., a fixed-income research and brokerage firm located in Barrington, Illinois.

Dr. David Krause said, "Bianco Research specializes in "macro" investment analysis of the equity and fixed-income markets. Their web site and daily e-mail posts are some of many products they offer their institutional customers. I read their research daily and participate in their bi-weekly conferences. Bianco Research is one of the top advisory firms in the country."

Since 1990, Jim Bianco has been producing fixed income commentaries with a circulation of hundreds of portfolio managers and traders. His commentaries are primarily devoted to the fixed income markets with special emphasis on: money flow characteristics of primary dealers, mutual funds, hedge funds, futures traders, banks, and institutional investors. Other topics he has researched include: the effects of commodity prices on bond yields, how the ratio of the equity market’s capitalization as a percentage of nominal gross domestic product affects price performance of the stock market, the role government regulation plays in determining inflation, how market performance affects mutual fund investors, the role politics plays in setting interest rates, and measuring the stock and bond markets from a total-return perspective.

Krause said, "Jim Bianco produces unique and original insights into movements in the financial markets and has been a featured speaker at many investment conferences. He is regularly featured in the following investment publications and he appears regularly on CNBC, CNN, Bloomberg and Fox Business News."

Prior to creating Bianco Research, Jim spent five years in New York City with several prominent investment banking firms. He was a Market Strategist in equity and fixed income research at UBS Securities and Equity Technical Analyst at First Boston and Shearson Lehman Brothers. He is a Chartered Market Technician (CMT) and a member of the Market Technicians Association (MTA), where he served as a national Vice-President and Chairman of the MTA’s 1996 annual seminar. Jim has a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from Marquette University (1984) and an MBA from Fordham University (1989).

Jim has been one of the panelists at the past AIM Forum events – and on Thursday, February 16th he will again be a presenter at the 6th AIM Forum (4-5 pm Raynor Library Conference Center). Krause said, "Jim Bianco has consistently been one of the top speakers that visits our campus. His role as a panelist at the AIM Forum has been highly praised. He is a lively and knowledgeable guest speaker and I know everyone will enjoy his visit. I look forward to his visit and I know the students learn a lot."
