New conference to shake up asset management
The sister publication of ifa, InvestorDaily, has today launched a new event that will bring a fast-paced ‘pitchfest’ environment to delivering investment content.
The InvestorDaily Asset Strategy Forum will deliver an upbeat, energetic, jam-packed day for financial advisers.
Following a keynote presentation and market overview, advisers will be presented with 18 unique fund strategies spanning six investment classes, all in the one day.
With presentations no longer than 15 minutes, advisers will be given short, sharp, concise information, with the opportunity to engage fund managers for further details.
Asset classes covered during the event will include domestic equities, global equities, fixed income, property, alternatives and ETFs.
Leading fund managers have been quick to back the initiative, with presentations on the day from Legg Mason Asset Management, corporate bond provider XTB, fixed-income specialist FIIG, fractional property investment platform DomaCom, and ANZ ETFS already on board and with more to follow.
Tickets are priced at just $99 for advisers, with CPD points also being offered to attendees. The event will be held on Wednesday 19 October in Sydney and Thursday 20 October in Melbourne.
Momentum Media's head of Wealth, Russell Stephenson, said the new event will give time-poor financial advisers a chance to learn about a wide range of asset strategies in one informative event.
“Events based around asset strategy often struggle to keep audiences engaged and lengthy presentations can make that even more challenging,” Mr Stephenson said.
“We drew inspiration from the exciting fintech space to come up with a fast-paced, energetic event that keeps things short and snappy."
“I’m confident advisers will walk away from the Asset Strategy Forum reinvigorated and with plenty of new ideas that can be implemented in client portfolios,” he said.
