Rex Sinquefield Will Speak at Lindenwood University

January 13, 2012

Lindenwood University’s Institute for the Study of Economics and the Environment will welcome financial expert Rex Sinquefield to deliver the institute’s 2012 Winter Policy Lecture at 3 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9, in Harmon Hall’s Dunseth Auditorium on the school’s St. Charles campus.

The lecture, titled “A Conversation about Good Business, Capitalism, and Liberty,” is free and open to the public. Sinquefield, often referred to as one of the world’s leading financial gurus, now spends his most of his time and resources dedicated to philanthropic causes. Raised in Saint Vincent Orphanage in St. Louis, Sinquefield earned a business degree from Saint Louis University and a master’s in business administration from the University of Chicago. Along with associate David Booth, Sinquefield formed Dimensional Fund Advisors in 1981, which today oversees $100 billion in global assets.

He co-founded and serves as president of the not-for-profit free market think tank the Show-Me Institute (SMI). In 2007, the Sinquefields founded the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis, where newcomers can learn the game and experienced players compete in local and national tournaments. Sinquefield is a life trustee of DePaul University and serves on the boards of the Missouri Botanical Garden, Missouri History Museum, Opera Theatre of St. Louis, Saint Louis Art Museum, Saint Louis Symphony, Contemporary Art Museum Saint Louis, and Saint Louis University.

He also is a member of the Investment Committee of the Archdiocese of Saint Louis and is the recipient of numerous awards for scholarship and service, including an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters.
