Influential Investors Forum


In its 11th iteration, the goal of this forum is to vet opportunities, introduce new ideas, discuss trends, and debate best practices for chief investment officers in the post-pandemic environment.

During CIO’s first live gathering since the pandemic, our Influential Investors Forum features topics that have been requested by and for chief investment officers. Many of the panelists and moderators have been nominated by their peers as thought leaders and well-known pundits in the industry. The panels will debate and discuss burgeoning topics that are top-of-mind for long-range investors, including investing in China; the role of fixed income; post-pandemic portfolios; game plans for fully funded plans; environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) without a bull market; and, of course, our very popular title round, when investors cast their votes for rising stars competing for the title of NextGen of the Year. The forum, packed with sharp allocator finalists who have arrived in New York City for our Industry Innovation Awards Dinner, presents the perfect opportunity to catch up and swap ideas with your peers.  

Forum agenda:
11:45 a.m. – Registration and Buffet Lunch
12:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. – Panels
Following the Forum, we will have a Cocktail Reception followed by dinner and awards ceremony.

This event has been designed exclusively for CIO’s Power 100, NextGen, and Knowledge Brokers list members, as well as for past and present asset-owner finalists of our Industry Innovation Awards.
