Our audiences are highly qualified and strictly defined so that everyone in attendance can contribute meaningfully to the discussion. We believe it is the exchange of information and experiences among peers that are the hallmark of relevant, productive events and it is that factor especially that sets us apart.
Our attendees speak candidly and openly because no press is allowed and overt marketing is prohibited, while interaction is encouraged and facilitated. Institutional Investor Forums sessions are led by the world’s leading experts in various fields; all experts who are invited to present share the common goals of communicating practical solutions and providing the information that delegates require.
Institutional Investor Forums are held regularly in North America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Central and South America. These Forums are designed to address the issues of most concern to investment decision-makers at the largest pension funds, endowments, foundations, family offices, and registered investment advisory firms as well as senior corporate executives (CFOs and risk managers) of the largest global firms.

IIN serves more than 3400 asset owners in 96 countries and allows senior officials to compare notes, share research and ask each other questions in a confidential environment.
The Manager Intelligence Network connects managers with this private community of asset owners and provides a window on their thinking. Using aggregated data, the Network reveals the hottest topics, most popular stories and top questions among investors in each region.
It also provides a highly targeted marketing channel. Managers can upload white papers, for example, and have them reach any asset owner on IIN interested in the topic. They can also answer questions that asset owners are asking about their product area and thus connect at the very moment an investor is reaching out for information. MIN provides managers with earlier engagement in the sales cycle and a far better understanding of investor needs.
