Women are changing the future of investment management as investors, advisers, and clients.

Alpha and Gender Diversity 2017 will build on the success of our first two Women in Investment Management events and offer a range of topics relevant to investment professionals, their clients, their employers, and the broader finance industry. The conference will feature renowned investors, researchers, and leaders who will

  • discuss how investment firms can improve their competitive advantage through greater gender diversity;
  • provide insights from the C-suite and career strategies for women seeking advancement;
  • explore how to enhance collaboration with clients to create investment solutions; and
  • offer timely investment strategies.

We have created a compelling agenda with innovative presentations designed to better position and shape investment firms for the future.

Sponsored by the CFA Institute Women in Investment Management initiative and leaning on the continued leadership of CFA Institute societies and CFA® charterholders globally, this conference will connect participants with actions and strategies to enhance investment decision making at firms, improve investor outcomes, and close the gender gap in the investment industry.
