10th Fund Summit

31 October 2023

The Fullerton Hotel, Sydney

Established in 2014, the Fund Summit is an independent, senior-level thought leadership forum for fund managers, super funds, insurers and other wealth management organisations.

It is focused on strategy and business implications for C-level and other senior executives, and sits at the intersection between key industry drivers and how investment businesses can set up to navigate them.

Formerly held as separate initiatives, the asset owner and asset manager forums came together in 2019 as an expanded conference with content for asset owners/super funds and asset managers.

The 10th anniversary ‘Fund Summit’ will be held in Sydney and offers an enlarged forum for the investment management industry to catch up and discuss topical industry issues.

The event examines a selection of focused topics through presentations, panel sessions, discussion and Q&A.

Please note: access is restricted to institutional and wholesale investors only.
