Milton Ezrati
Senior Economist and Market Strategist

Milton Ezrati’s long career in finance has taught him to present compellingly on a wide variety of economic, financial, and political topics. He has spoken in North America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East to audiences that consisted of financial professionals, academic, and political groups, and occasionally, the general public. Throughout his speaking career, Milton has been voted “Most Popular Speaker” by financial firms such as Merrill Lynch, Smith Barney, and Raymond James.


During the last 13 years as the senior economist and market strategist at Lord, Abbett & Co., his talks have largely taken a top-down approach to economic and market prospects. Within that broad area, Milton has had to emphasize diverse topics from market valuation to policy analysis, to economic prospects, and even to geopolitical risks. He has spoken for corporations like CitiCorp, JP Morgan Chase, Lionel Edie & Co., Manufacturers Hanover Investment Corp., and many more. His breadth of experience enables him to speak compellingly and entertainingly to any audience with investment and political-economic interest, professional, or otherwise.

In the next three decades, Milton Ezrati argues that key societal and fiscal changes will affect the economies of our nations at large: an ever increasing pool of retirees will burden relatively diminished workforces, slowing the pace of growth and straining public as well as private finances.

The Economic Outlook These discussions explain economic prospects, distinguishing what could happen from what is likely. They will include commentary on all major influences, including the political and geopolitical, and put into perspective all the usual parameters, economic growth, employment, inflation, fiscal and monetary policy, housing, energy prices, and whatever other issues interest the audience in question. When the audience wants a longer-term focus, these talks will naturally also include commentary on demographic and social trends.
The Investment Outlook These talks take up broad investment opportunities, again distinguishing possibilities from probabilities. They include commentary on relevant policy and economic developments, market valuations, and draw actionable conclusions on stocks, bonds, alternative, and overseas investments.
