Edward Dowd has worked on Wall Street most of his career spanning both the credit markets and equity markets. He cut his teeth early on at HSBC as an institutional fixed income salesperson for 5 years in the 90’s, gaining an understanding of the credit markets, foreign exchange markets, repo markets and fixed income derivatives market. Some of the other firms he’s worked for include Donaldson Lufkin & Jenrette, Independence Investments and most notably at BlackRock as a portfolio manager, where he managed a $14 billion Growth Equity Portfolio for 10 years. It should be noted that at BlackRock, that fund was grown to 14 billion from only 2 billion when he began there, truly putting the “Growth” in the Growth Equity Portfolio.
Ed Dowd is the author of the new book, “Cause Unknown: The Epidemic of Sudden Deaths in 2021 & 2022.” (Release Date: Dec. 13th, 2022, Skyhorse Publishing). He is also currently a Founding Partner at Phinance Technologies, a global macro alternative investment firm. One of the objectives at Phinance Technologies is “The Humanity Project”, where they collect and analyse the best available data for their 5 main research projects – on excess mortality in multiple countries, Disability & Absences in the USA only, as well as the V-Damage project and Demographics project. Ed and his partners at Phinance Technologies undertake research with an open mind but, they also strictly adhere to the principles of scientific rigor, which allows them to be unhindered by political and economic pressure, and are as such unbiased in their conclusions.
Ed is a frequent guest on multiple podcasts and mainstream media outlets. He has appeared on Tucker Carlson Today, Steve Bannon’s War Room, Valuetainment’s PBD podcast, Man in America with Seth Holehouse, American Thought Leaders on Epoch TV, CHD TV, Mel K, Kim Iverson, Alex Jones, Maria Zee, Charlie Kirk, and many more, too numerous to mention. Ed was also invited to give testimony in Washington, DC at Senator Ron Johnson’s covid roundtable, where he delivered some of his most compelling findings to date, alongside some of the most renowned expert doctors, business people, and politicians in the country.
When Ed isn’t traveling the country giving keynote presentations, or doing research or being interviewed, he can be found in his home state of Hawaii, where he enjoys the sun, sand and the surf.
Early in 2021, Ed noticed a rise of news anecdotes about sudden deaths among very fit athletes and other seemingly healthy young people across America, Canada, Europe, and other parts of the world. What was causing this? What’s different now? Why didn’t this happen in 2020?
Ed asked himself a simple question: What changed in 2021? . . . it may seem obvious to some and a mystery for others, but for Ed there was only one conclusion that could be drawn, and the answer is based on observational data, numbers and logic: Over the course of 2021 and 2022, Ed amassed evidence from the insurance industry, funeral home industry, and government databases that excessive deaths among working-age Americans had increased in 2021 versus 2020, when vaccines were not available.
In this talk, replete with factual charts and government data (from sources you don’t hear about everyday), Ed explains what he thinks has happened, where we are going, and how to deal with the ramifications of what could be one of the most tragic and colossal medical scandals ever.
But, says Ed, there is hope, and there is plenty that can be done. Ed ends this talk with some truly inspirational messaging sure to leave audiences feeling empowered, and with a positive outlook for the future.
**The “Cause Unknown” talk can be customized to include an economic update.
Stock, Bonds, Commodities, Inflation, Central Banks, The Fed, The Markets… what is really going on?
In this compelling keynote presentation, Ed explains where he thinks the markets may be headed, and why they are headed there – because he breaks down the macro-trends that are affecting stocks, bonds and commodity prices – and explains it in such a way that is accessible to everyone.
In this highly customizable talk, former BlackRock fund manager Edward Dowd explains his investment thesis for the unprecedented times we are in, drawing on his insiders knowledge of the capital markets and analysis of financial data; he explains how to prepare economically for what might be coming – whether it be a dollar crash, a real estate market crash, runaway inflation or… a slow and very possible demise of the insurance companies.
Some of the interesting takeaways from Ed’s talk are almost completely counter-intuitive; after all, Ed had a successful career on Wall Street by knowing how to pick stocks others didn’t. What does Ed see that others don’t, or won’t? What he sees is: This inflation costing you 6 or 7 dollars for a gallon of gas is not only monetary; it’s caused by others factors as well. But what?
Ever the contrarian, Ed has been driving pundits and market watchers crazy when he says that money printing is NOT really causing all this recent inflation – it may be a part of it, but, there’s another reason for it. (You might not believe the answer – though it may be obvious, hardly anyone sees it.) Further, he says that we aren’t truly in an inflationary economy – it’s actually deflationary. And he says if there is a credit crisis – look out.
Ed also discusses the U.S. dollar, and asks is it being devalued, as the inflation pundits all resoundingly say it is? Maybe – but the dollar is still strong against other currencies. What explains this apparent contradiction? Could it be a troika of policy errors from Energy Policy to the Ukraine and Central Bank policy playing havoc with inflation and the dollar?
Now then, in this keynote – Ed answers that one very basic question that no one can seem to figure out: How can the dollar be losing purchasing power at home but rising against other currencies? (If this changes – Ed will explain why…).
Ed’s cure for America’s economic woes may well be something you’ve never heard before, and offers up a pretty gutsy investment thesis in order to survive the potential train wreck heading our way…
