Future of Index Investing Symposium 2018

12th Sep 2018
Jumeirah Carlton Tower

Institutional Investor is delighted to present our first Future of Index Investing Symposium on Wednesday 12th September at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower, London. The event will bring together asset allocators from across the investment spectrum to discuss, and challenge, the established views and practices in index and ETF investing. The agenda features a keynote address from Bill McNabb, Chairman of Vanguard

With some commentators suggesting the investment industry may have hit “peak passive”, this symposium will explore the key risks and opportunities facing investors.

  • The disruptive trends spurring further index and ETF adoption among institutional investors
  • What are the broader unintended consequences of passive investing and ETFs?
  • What asset allocators really need to know about index construction
  • Are investors too concentrated when it comes to allocating to certain indexes or index providers?
  • The best ways of using and trading ETFs
  • What the likely trends in indexing investing will mean for asset owners

This private, by-invitation-only meeting is designed to encourage discussion on best practice between senior asset allocators from wealth managers, portfolio managers, traders, institutional investors, investment consultants, market makers, index providers, brokers and ETF issuers.
