2019 Litigation & Governance Trends for Asset Management Firms

Apr 30th - May 1st 2019
Waldorf Astoria

Since its inception 10 years ago, this meeting has evolved as the thinking around corporate governance, shareholder engagement, and active litigation has developed and matured. It began as a forum for public pension plans focused primarily on corporate governance and then became the meeting known as the Evolving Fiduciary Obligations of Pension Plans, taking on a more shareholder engagement perspective

A few years ago, again as the openness to and use of these tools became more developed, the meeting was renamed to the Evolving Obligations of Institutional Investors so as to reflect the growing acceptance and usage of active engagement and shareholder litigation abilities by asset management firms globally.

Now the meeting has achieved its maturity as the forum assessing and evaluating Litigation & Governance Trends for Asset Management Firms. With its subtitle of An Examination of the Top Issues for Legal and Compliance Executives, we believe the conference’s sole focus on examining the needs of legal and compliance teams at global asset management firms through the lens of active engagement, shareholder actions, and affirmative litigation accurately reflects the state of thinking and evolution in the market today and provides much-needed information that these executives require to fully fulfill their full range of responsibilities at their firms.
