Future of Finance Conference
As you may know, the CFA Institute has launched the Future of Finance initiative and last May marked the inaugural ASFIP conference designed to engage our investment professional community on this topic.  Effective 2017, April has been designated Putting Investors First month and Governor Nathan Deal has issued a proclamation citing Investors First Month in the state of Georgia.
What does it mean to put your clients’ interests first and what are the implications for our profession?  We seek to explore that topic at our upcoming half day conference on April 19th at the Grand Hyatt Buckhead, and we truly hope you join us and our sponsor partners for the discussion.  We are thrilled to have the CAIA Association, Georgia Securities Association, Southeastern Hedge Fund Association, and the National Association of Securities Professionals sponsor the event again this year.  Additionally, we are excited to welcome and extend this event invitation to the CFA Society of South Carolina.
The underlying principles of the initiative are for investment professionals to build better relationships with clients and investors, improve the bottom line of the firm’s business, and benefit society.  Fulfilling this mandate begins with you and all society members in order to build awareness and promote action.  We have a number of exciting speakers and panelists leading discussions across a number of topics:

  • The future state of the investment profession;
  • Macro factors that will impact our profession;
  • Developments in financial technology;
  • Demographic considerations for serving different client segments;
  • Alternative investments and long-horizon investing.

More information on our speakers, session descriptions, and event agenda can be found here.  If you’re unable to attend the entire conference, we certainly hope you consider attending at least a portion of it since there are a number of sessions tailored to different industry participants.  We look forward to your involvement on April 19th with this important topic.  Approved for 5 hrs of PD & CFP credit.  Breakfast & Lunch Served.
