Your Host

Dear Fellow Investor:

Please accept my personal invitation to join Steve Forbes, an outstanding roster of experts, and me for the 29th Forbes Cruise for Investors, sailing February 5-17, 2018. We've arranged for an incredible journey of 12 magical days cruising from Perth to Sydney, Australia, with fellow market enthusiasts and a brilliant faculty of top experts. On this wonderfully enticing, sun-kissed itinerary, we’ll be visiting some of the most delightful ports in the “Land Down Under” during a very pleasant time of the year.

Between ports, our faculty of renowned market experts will share their insights, wisdom, and experience with you, both formally in informative seminars-at-sea and interactive Q&A sessions, and informally over cocktail receptions and hosted dinners. They will discuss global-macroeconomic overviews, cutting-edge strategies for managing your portfolios in volatile markets, promising international growth opportunities, and more, all while you’re enjoying the many shipboard amenities and legendary service that is the hallmark of Crystal Cruises. This line-up of top financial experts provides you with a truly unique opportunity for learning and enrichment.

And—it is all at sea, in a spectacular setting of natural beauty, luxury, and relaxation. This promises to be a memorable adventure—one that I sincerely hope we can share together, so I hope you will join us.

Mr. Forbes helped create the highly acclaimed public television documentary, In Money We Trust?, which was produced under the auspices of Maryland Public television.

The prize was formerly given by US Steel Corporation to the financial journalist whose economic forecasts for the coming year proved most accurate. In both 1996 and 2000, Mr. Forbes campaigned vigorously for the Republican nomination for the Presidency. Key to his platform were a flat tax, medical savings accounts, a new Social Security system for working Americans, parental choice of schools for their children, term limits, and a strong national defense.
