What distinguishes the CIO Summit from other conferences?

The Summit consistently attracts world-class investors and thought-leading allocators for a powerful day of networking and high-level discussions of the most critical issues confronting money managers and investment officers.  Several important factors distinguish this Summit from other conferences.
 
  • Hosted by two top-tier university-based organizations 
  • Focused on bringing LPs and GPs thought-provoking content and ideas in an intimate, engaging environment.  
  • peer only setting/investor only for alternative investors who share the common interest of participating in leading edge discussions about the future of our industry
  • Multi-year success in convening investment decision makers from endowments, foundations, single/multi- family offices, corporate and public pensions, as well as insurance.
  • No media means open discussions on the most critical topics facing alternative investors today
