Creating Opportunity through Collaboration
Strategic Insight Fund Trends Conference / June 21-22, 2016
Chelsea Piers, Pier 60, New York
Our 8th annual SIFT conference will once again bring together senior fund executives, with their counterparts at key distributors, to share thoughts and discuss key industry trends. Last year we hosted over 200 executives from across the mutual fund and wealth management industries – including leaders of sales, national accounts, product development, marketing and strategy from fund managers, as well as heads of mutual fund relationships and other key gatekeepers at the industry’s most important distributors. This year we expect an even larger crowd to join the research experts at Strategic Insight as we tackle today’s most pressing challenges and most important opportunities.
