In additional to its renowned publications, Institutional Investor offers highly respected thought leadership products as well as proprietary benchmark rankings and ratings on buy-side and sell-side research, hedge fund activity, and asset and wealth management.

Institutional Investor’s 15 Membership organizations create invaluable opportunities for senior executives in asset management to meet their peers and clients to discuss critical industry issues and trends. Through long-lasting relationships developed in these groups, members enjoy a trust and camaraderie as valuable as the specific information disseminated at the meetings. The Membership groups are truly global, both in location and in the issues they address, and while each group focuses on the major industry issues facing its region of the world, they also address the global reality of expanding markets.
For more than 40 years, Institutional Investor Forums have delivered unique, exclusive events—highly interactive forums for senior financial executives and investors to hear from global thought leaders and selected solutions providers. 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.
The Investor Intelligence Network (IIN) is a private and confidential online community for asset owners. Launched in January 2011 by Institutional Investor Inc., IIN has over 3,400 members from 96 countries as of April 1, 2015.
Membership is by invitation-only and is subject to a strict vetting procedure. Members use IIN to find out what sophisticated investors in other parts of the world are doing to minimize risk and maximize return; they ask peers and guest experts questions, and access proprietary macroeconomic research and white papers from investment managers. There is a wide range of discussion forums on a variety of investment issues.
In order to preserve a private setting for asset owners, IIN does not provide access for investment managers or other vendors.
The Manager Intelligence Network is a private website for investment managers. It provides market intelligence and access to four institutional markets – North America, Europe, Sovereign, and Asia Pacific. It is based on a unique link to the world’s most successful online community for institutional investors, the Investor Intelligence Network (IIN). 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. There is no more powerful way to introduce the expertise of an asset management firm to asset owners.
