A very special event. Experts from three industry titans -- Research Affiliates, Wisdom Tree, and Blackrock – will share brief presentations of their leading-edge research – followed by their candid thoughts in a panel setting -- on the growing debate about smart beta/passive/active investing with our growing, high-powered group of leaders in wealth management. Topics to be discussed include when and how active managers succeed, how to choose among the growing array of smart beta offerings, blending strategies, active/passive fixed income strategies, currency hedging, the impact of taxes on various forms of implementation of active, passive, and non-market-capitalization-weighted strategies, and a new paper about how “smart beta” can go “horribly wrong”. A must-attend event for the advisor or firm that not only wants to stay ahead of the curve, but bend it as well. Limited to the first 100 registrants.

Speakers:
  • Luciano Siracusano, Chief Investment Strategist (WisdomTree) 
  • Vitali Kalesnik, Ph.D., Director, Head of Equity Research (Research Affiliates)
