The 4th Annual
Switzerland Institutional Forum is an educational initiative designed through
close coordination with the region’s leading institutional investors to build
peer communities that merge global best practices with local expertise. The
forum is designed to bring together 70+ fund leadership teams, investment
officers, board members, trustees, and their consultants representing
Australia’s institutional investment community.
The forum's agenda was developed through extensive local travel and feedback from the institutional investor community including executive directors, chief investment officers, senior finance and investment staff, general counsels and trustees representing institutional asset owners across public and corporate pension plans, endowments, foundations, insurance portfolios, healthcare plans, and investment consultants.
