The RIA West Investment ForumOctober 18-19, 2016
The Ritz-Carlton
San Francisco, CA

Visit The RIA West Investment Forum minisite for more information.

In the fifth year of Institutional Investor’s West Coast RIA Investment Forum, we are setting our sights overseas with a special focus on the investment opportunities and risks presented by the global markets. In the current tumultuous global landscape, between geopolitical risks, central bank actions and volatility in the equity markets RIAs are struggling to meet the needs of their clients. With robo-advisors threatening to entice a huge pool of new, younger clients, RIAs must establish and communicate an investment edge to justify fees and grow their businesses. Over the course of 1.5 days, senior executives from the country’s leading independent RIAs and the RIA Institute’s supporting members will discuss the benefits that global opportunities can add to a portfolio and the ones which can differentiate your firm’s investment line up and provide returns to your clients. Through panel discussions, breakout groups, workshops and expert guest presentations, we aim to uncover where RIAs should be looking and where the greatest risks are.

If you are interested in being considered for an invitation please contact Ann Cornish, Audience Director, at +1 (212) 224-3877 or at email

Strategic Asset Allocation Symposium

Strategic Asset Allocation SymposiumNovember 10, 2016
Metropolitan Club
New York

Please visit the Strategic Asset Allocation Symposium minisite for more information.

The last several years have presented an ongoing conundrum for investors: Where – in all the world with all its various investment opportunities – are they to find the assets which offer reasonable risk-adjusted returns? And in a world where assets and strategies seem unreasonably correlated, where are they to find true, demonstrable diversification?

As an exploration of these key objectives for any investment portfolio – returns and diversification – Institutional Investor is launching the Strategic Asset Allocation Symposium. This one-day event on November 10 is designed for investment decision-makers at pension funds, endowments, foundations, and selected family offices, RIA firms, and investment consultants who are looking for possible answers to those questions.

If you are interested in being considered for an invitation please contact Ann Cornish, Audience Director, at +1 (212) 224-3877 or at email
