A rare wealth management savant with a dual sense of humor and humility, Mike Williams epitomizes Warren Buffett’s tenet of turning complex concepts into digestible truths.

The US-based Genesis Asset Management and Demogronomics founder and managing director is a candid market commentator who enchants business leaders and high net worth individuals the world over with his “five most dangerous words”, warnings about buying into the media’s “red ink” and enduring contrarian perspective that lifts you up with one hand, and offers you an emotional pack of Tums with the other. And like many of the world’s top advisers, one of his greatest assets is his refusal to acknowledge his own strength. Ignore his insights at your peril.
