The 18th Annual Competitive Challenges Conference
September 29 & 30, 2021 |  Virtual Format

Welcome to Competitive Challenges 2021

Investment Management Industry Post Pandemic:
Tipping Point or Business as Usual?

We will be hosting the 18th annual Competitive Challenges Conference on September 29-30, 2021. While we have made the decision to hold a virtual format again this year, our goal remains to host the premier conference and industry event for senior delegates and decision-makers from asset management firms. We will share insights, data and perspectives about important topics and seek to foster a collaborative, inclusive dialogue about the business of investment management.

The theme for this year’s event, Investment Management Industry Post Pandemic: Tipping Point or Business as Usual?, is whether the industry will experience a ‘tipping point’ as we emerge from COVID-19. Specifically, how will heightened investor expectations for strong brands, tech-enabled client experiences, new investment approaches, not to mention low fees, impact the asset management business? And, on a more practical level, what business practices can leadership teams implement to maximize the chance of success in the future? Please refer to our agenda tab to learn more about our panel discussions that will address these topics.

In the coming weeks, we look forward to sharing additional information about our 2021 Competitive Challenges Conference.
