Spring Break for Wall Street to Descend on South Florida

Looks like South Florida's spring break this year isn't going to be just where the boys are

Fort Lauderdale will also be the locale for some bonds gone wild with the top guns of Wall Street. LDV Capital Management will party with its own series of weeklong celebrations at its fourth Growth & Value Investor Conference, also known as "Spring Break for Wall Street." 

The five-week event includes a series of dinner presentations by a number of publicly

traded companies, including popular New York Stock Exchange company heavy hitters like Aflac, Fidelity National Info. Services, and Petrobras. 

The reason they chose South Florida, according to the Stock and Bond Club of South Florida, is the concentration of professional money managers and private equity investors.

The conference, however, seems to be ignoring that South Florida is also the unofficial headquarters of Scott Rothstein-style Ponzi investment scams. Here's hoping at least one breakout session addresses how to keep our meager retirement savings out of pyramid schemes.
