Women Investment Professionals is pleased to announce the expansion of its longstanding and popular Member’s Only Educational Series with a new name – “What’s Important Now” or “WIN.” With the WIN Series of events Members will continue to be able to attend for free as just one of the benefits of membership. However, non-members will also be able to participate for a modest $35 fee per session. By offering these events to non-members and expanding participation, everyone will benefit from additional perspectives and viewpoints. Now that’s diversity in action!
As with Members Only, WIN will continue to apply a thematic approach to the annual series addressing issues that are important across all of the functions represented in the institutional investment community. As part of the series, panelists will give insights into important trends and how they might impact our industry, positively or negatively, as well as discuss implications for future career prospects as these trends evolve.
This year’s WIN series will investigate The Impact of Technology, Algorithms, and Artificial Intelligence on the Investment Industry. The first session, which will be held on March 19th, 2020 from 4-6 pm will focus on the likely changes in the areas of distribution and marketing from the points of view of investment managers, plan sponsors, and consultants. Later this spring, our second session will take a look at the potential impact on investment firm structure and management. Our final session, to be held in the fall, will delve into the implications for investment research and decision-making processes.
We look forward to seeing you at the inaugural session of the new WIN educational series in March!
