The European Institute is a private membership group for Chief Executive Officers, Chief Information Officers, Chief Financial Officers, Chief Operating Officers and Compliance Heads of asset management firms, from traditional institutional managers through to specialist boutiques. Membership provides a peer group networking forum where members share strategic insights and best practice, debate current thinking and compare ideas.
The ability to debate not just topical issues but also longer term strategic challenges has meant that this is one of the most important conferences I attend each year.

I very much enjoyed the Chief Investment Officer event. As usual, I found it a very effective way to catch up on industry trends, and to exchange with peers. The focused sessions, sustained tempo, and variety of topics make this a “must attend” event, helping myself and fellow asset owners/managers to keep up with the industry.
