Thomas Landstreet is a savvy economist, forecaster, analyst, investment practioner, and speaker who delivers his material with humor to engage and better equip audiences.
He operates in the real world, and makes real predictions for invesetors based on the research he spearheads as the Co-Founder and President of Trusco Investment Management and the Co-founder of N3L Capital Partners, manager of the N3L Fund, a strategic investment limited partnership.
He specializes in “big picture” economic and thematic research. For him, as a practioner, his forecasts are not academic in nature but have concequences in the real world. He works to have a “sharp battle axe as a practioner” so he can do a better job helping investors as they navigate the future of the market, economics, government policy, and international geopolitics. His background and trackrecord also helped him become a top contributor at Forbes.com.
With his rich research background, he finds himself speaking to a lot of global investment audiences and industrial audiences as well with a high percentage of clients asking him to come back year after year.
Although speaking on a meaty subject, he delivers his presentations with both the humor and practical ideas to keep the audience engaged and leave them with “a lasting framework for looking at the world”. He learned how to engage an audience early on doing stand-up comedy in New York comedy clubs, and brings that skill-set to add some levity to what can be heavy, technical topics.
