STRATEGIES CONFERENCE 2019 - 20/20 VISION
Great eyesight depends on more than just clarity of vision - peripheral awareness, eye co-ordination, depth perception, focus and colour sensitivity all play a crucial role, without which our vision is impaired.
To design and build quality portfolios capable of meeting the long-term objectives of investors, practitioners need clear vision across a range of issues - setting objectives, asset allocation, portfolio risk and currency management, selecting and blending specific investments, and analysing the resulting portfolio. Of course, hindsight has the benefit of being 20/20 vision, so we can look back with clarity on the past decade and the portfolio construction lessons learned. But more importantly, we need clear foresight of the forces which will influence portfolios in the 2020s and beyond.
Strategies Conference 2019 will challenge and refresh your portfolio construction thinking, by debating contemporary and emerging portfolio construction strategies - with emphasis on looking ahead at the issues that will dominate the 2020s and beyond - to provide greater clarity in building quality portfolios.
We'd welcome you joining us!

Coming from interstate? We strongly recommend you fly in the evening prior - it's a jam-packed program and it's best to be fresh to get the most from it (and flight delays could jeopardise your CE/CPD accreditation).
To challenge and refresh delegates' portfolio construction thinking by debating contemporary and emerging portfolio construction strategies, to consider applying in practice to build better quality investment portfolios.
MOST SUITED TO
Strategies Conference is for portfolio construction Practitioners, first and foremost.
By that, 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 both institutional and private wealth practitioners (the program is designed with both in mind).
We also recognise and respect the invaluable role of Advocates and welcome them attending, too.
Each year, more than 600 delegates attend the program, 75% or more of whom are portfolio construction practitioners.
CE/CPD ACCREDITATION: 12 to 20 hours
By attending the live program in full, delegates can earn 12 CE hours - and after the program, delegates can earn a further 8 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 16 governing bodies (regulators, associations and institutes - including ASIC RG104/105/146, FASEA, AFA, SMSFA, FPA and CIMA® CE/CPD requirements.
The Forum's subject matter focus is on five Knowledge Domains – philosophy, markets, strategies, investing and finology. Strategies Conference addresses all five knowledge domains however, as the name implies, the program is focused primarily on our "Strategies" knowledge domain:
– designing robust investment strategies to meet defined
Strategies Conference is THE portfolio construction conference of the year. The blended face-to-face and online learning program is designed and curated by our specialist, experienced and independent team. It features our Faculty of 50+ leading investment thinkers - portfolio managers, CIOs, senior investment analysts, investment strategists, economists, research consultants and practitioners - from around the world. Each offers his/her best high conviction ideas on contemporary and emerging portfolio construction strategies, in the context of the program theme, 20/20 vision.
Like all our blended live and online continuing education programs, Strategies Conference is an integrated learning program with preparation, participation and review.
Before - Prepare
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.
During - Participate
The program features the 8.5-hour "Critical Issues Forum" (plenary) program and 3.5 hour "Special Interests Forum" (elective) program. At the live program, delegates attend all the CIF sessions and three SIF sessions (each of which features two back-to-back presentations). Afterwards, delegates can attend the remaining 16 SIF presentations via the online webcast (and earn further CE hours).
Strategies Conference 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.
After - Review
After the live program, delegates' learning continues. The presentations are webcast here on portfolioconstructionforum.edu.au – a page per presentation featuring the sync’d video and slides, podcast, presentation slides and paper(s). Delegates can revisit and review the sessions they attended, "attend" the 16 Special Interest Forum sessions 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.
