The day’s events will begin with the Lipper Alpha Forum. This intimate, interactive meeting will bring together the Lipper Award winning fund executives, industry leaders, wealth managers, distribution professionals, and investment advisors who are shaping the U.S. investment management industry to discuss the global macro issues that will drive the economy and investments in 2017, trends in fund distribution, and debate active/passive/smart beta strategies.
The Lipper Fund Awards dinner and ceremony will follow the Forum and will recognize funds and fund management firms for their consistently strong risk-adjusted three-, five-, and ten-year performance, relative to their peers, based on Lipper’s proprietary performance-based methodology. Four Group Awards, including the coveted Overall Award, will also be given to firms with superior asset class performance.
The Lipper Alpha Forum and Fund Awards provide a unique opportunity for fund managers, fund distribution professionals, wealth managers and advisors to network with clients and peers, discuss current issues with industry experts, and celebrate the achievements of the award winners.
