Event Information

Established in 1962 by Jim Fraser, the Contrary Opinion Forum has met for 53 consecutive years since, attracting economists, investment professionals, individual investors and other contrary-minded individuals from around the world to exchange perspectives on investment trends, gain new insights and develop friendships.


The Forum features speakers and attendees who are recognized investment managers, technical analysts, asset specialists, economists and other thought leaders. The unique and intimate venue offers the ideal setting for sharing information, comparing contrasting points-of-view and making and renewing friendships.


Many attendees have been returning to the Forum for years, if not decades. The fascinating participants, accessible presenters, gorgeous venue, outstanding food and social activities contribute to make this event a highlight of the year for the attendees.


This event is uniquely designed to facilitate the sharing of information and the development of life-long friendships. Unlike other conferences, the Forum has no sponsors, no arranged sales meetings and no booths. The fabric of the Forum is the attendees and presenters.


Attendance is limited to 125, so early registration is a must. Room reservations are essential. Many guests bring participating spouses. Others enjoy the venue and join the social and extraordinary culinary events.
