Strategic Insight has gathered in-house and outside experts to lead an unprecedented half-day, interactive conference on mutual fund distribution.

The SI Forum will feature short formal presentations followed by lengthy roundtable discussions on the general topics of those presentations – today’s hottest topics in fund distribution, including opportunities in the DCIO marketplace and how to reach RIAs.

The roundtables will be led by presenters from Strategic Insight, Coates Analytics, Sincere & Co., Sway Research and Cogent Research. These discussions will be interactive, so come prepared with questions for our thought leaders and for your fellow mutual fund executives – we expect attendees to share their approaches, stories and challenges, and answer questions from the presenters.

SI’s Avi Nachmany will provide a lunchtime update on key industry trends.

The event lasts from 11:00 am to 4:30 pm., with a sit-down lunch and coffee breaks. Cost: $500 per person; only $400 per person if your firm sends three or more people.

Questions to be addressed in presentations/discussions include:
-How can fund firms do a better job segmenting financial advisors?
-Which investment styles have been growing the fastest at national broker dealers?
-What are the opportunities and challenges of working within the independent RIA marketplace?
-How has the crash altered the landscape of DC plan investment menus and where are new opportunities?
-Which brand elements must firms enhance in order to drive future loyalty and purchase intent?
