MARKETS SUMMIT 2019 - THE HEAT IS ON!
A decade on from the GFC and global markets are once again smouldering.
As developed world central banks continue to wind down their post-GFC unconventional monetary policies, asset valuations are under pressure and investors are alert to any developments which might trigger a disorderly sell-off. Simultaneously, portfolio construction practitioners must navigate an array of potential cyclical, secular and structural threats – an inflation breakout and political disfunction in the US, a Chinese financial crisis, a Brexit meltdown, a sluggish Australian economy, and the financial impact of global warming – many of which have the potential to ignite a market meltdown. The heat is on!
Markets Summit facilitates debate on the key drivers of and outlook for the markets (on a three- to five-year view), to aid your search for return, and to help you build better quality investor portfolios.
We'd welcome you joining us!
P.S. Why not also join us for Finology Summit 2019 "Investing beliefs, biases and behaviours" (Wed-Thu 20-21 Feb 2019)? It will help you better understand how your own and other people's different beliefs, biases and behaviours around investing impact investment markets - and influence your portfolio construction philosophy and practices.

MOST SUITED TO
Markets Summit is relevant to all wealth management professionals who have a responsibility to understand the drivers of and outlook for investment markets.
This includes both institutional and wholesale portfolio construction practitioners (the program is designed with both in mind) by which we mean those whose primary day-to-day role is focused within the spectrum of issues involved in designing and building investment portfolios using (but not necessarily limited to) managed funds from a range of firms. This includes:
We also recognise and respect the invaluable role of Advocates and welcome them attending, too.
Each year, more than 550 delegates attend the program, 75% or more of whom are portfolio construction practitioners.
CE ACCREDITATION: 7.5 to 11.5 CE hours
By attending the live program in full, delegates can earn 7.5 CE Hours and after the program, delegates can earn a further 4.0 CE hours by “attending” online the sessions they didn't catch at the live program.
CE hours earned can be used to help meet the CE/CPD requirements of 15 regulators, associations, institutes and designations - including ASIC RG104/105/146 CE requirements, FASEA, AFA, FPA and CIMA® certificants’ CE commitments.
As the name implies, Markets Summit is focused primarily on our “Markets” knowledge domain:
Markets – understanding the drivers of and outlook for the
Markets Summit is THE investment markets scene setter of the year. The jam-packed blended learning program is designed and curated by our specialist, experienced and independent team and features our Faculty of 20+ leading investment thinkers - geopolitical specialists, economists, market/asset class experts, and investment strategists - from around the world. Each offers his/her best high conviction ideas on the drivers of and outlook for the markets (on a three- to five-year view), in the context of the theme - The heat is on! - and the implications for portfolios.
Like all our blended live and online continuing education programs, Markets Summit is an integrated learning program with preparation, participation and review.
To maximise learning, delegates are provided with pre-reading aimed at boosting their knowledge and getting them thinking about the issues to be addressed in the program. The preparation is assumed prior knowledge.
The live program is comprised of a 5.5-hour Critical Issues Forum (plenary) program and 1.5-hour Special Interests Forum (elective) program, delivering a total of 20+ high conviction presentations. Delegates attend all the CIF sessions and one SIF session (featuring three back-to-back presentations) at the live program. Afterwards, delegates can attend the remaining nine SIF presentations via online webcast (and earn further CE).
Markets Summit is not just a talk-fest. Attendees are challenged to decide whether they agree or disagree with each high conviction thesis presented, which ones they will investigate further, and which they will put into practice when building investor portfolios.
The Markets Summit 2019 program will be available in January. Meanwhile, one of the best ways to understand more about program is to experience it for yourself by "attending" a prior year online.
But don't delay in registering! Early bird ends Thursday 24 January 2019 and we expect to sell out.
After the live program, delegates' learning continues. The presentations are webcast on portfolioconstructionforum.edu.au – a page per presentation featuring the sync'd video and slides, podcast, slides and paper(s) - so delegates can revisit the sessions they attended, as well as "attend" the SIF presentations they didn't catch at the live program (and earn further CE hours), and review their key takeouts and the portfolio construction implications to determine actions to take to build better quality investor portfolios.
