This April, Opal Financial Group will head to London for the inaugural Investment Consultants Forum Europe, a one day event modeled after Opal’s annual Investment Consultants Forum held in New York.
The European edition of the Investment Consultants Forum will address issues that are most critical to the investment success of senior pension and endowment fund officers, and trustees. The Forum will cover how surplus returns should affect employee benefit plans, the processes for selection and evaluation of investment managers, legal concerns with fund investment, and management policies. Speakers and panels will also discuss the benefits and pitfalls of a wide variety of investment strategies.
The role of the institutional consultant is more important than ever in making investment decisions, often being asked to take on more than just the evaluation of investment managers. The European edition of the Forum follows the success of the Midwest edition held in Chicago this past December, relating the relevant issues to European markets.
The Investment Consultants Forum Europe will take place on April 1 at the iconic Waldorf Hilton in London. This hotel flawlessly combines traditional historic grandeur with modern luxuries, and sits on the tree-lined Aldwych thoroughfare, minutes away from Covent Garden.
