Inaugural New York Sub-Advisory Symposium

Feb 29th 2024
The Langham New York
New York, NY

…well, it’s near impossible to give that accolade to such an illustrious and accomplished group as our community of sub-advisory gatekeepers. So, in its place, we’ll instead be recognizing a few standout individuals in various categories. Across different asset classes and strategies and delving into both rising stars and established stalwarts in the industry, our Inaugural NYC Symposium will celebrate the standouts and learn from them directly on how they have managed to navigate this industry.

Join us at the Langham NYC this Winter to share in the celebrations and insights – we look forward to having you with us!

About the sub-advisory institute

The Sub-Advisory Institute is a private membership organization for buyers of sub-advisory services and manager research, selection & oversight executives representing mutual fund companies, OCIOs, insurance firms, retirement platforms, and other asset managers which out-source. Through expert-led panel discussions, presentations, guest speakers and live market research, each of our two annual events will bring together leading participants in the sub-advisory landscape to assess how the investment objectives of institutions are changing and how firms that offer sub-advised strategies can respond to these needs.
