Global financial markets in the early 2020s may be remembered for tremendous upheaval, transitions, and the reversal of market trends of the past 40 years. It has been a challenging environment for investors with rising rates, market repricings, supply / demand imbalances, sticky inflation, and increasingly restrictive monetary policies — as one economic regime ends, another begins. Asset allocation, active management, diversification, and risk management matter more than ever.

The CFA Institute Asset and Risk Allocation conference will address these issues and feature distinguished investment researchers, asset owners, asset managers, thought leaders, and policymakers as speakers who will share their insights to help investors navigate global risks and explore investment opportunities against the backdrop of a changing global economic environment. The overall objective of the program is to help investors enhance their asset, strategy, and risk allocation decisions; meet investment objectives; and improve investment outcomes for clients.
