Public Funds Summit

Event : Public Funds Summit

Tue, 07/01/2014  
Conducted by : Opal Group
Contact : Marketing

Opal Financial Group's annual public funds conference addresses issues that are critical to the investment success of senior public pension fund officers and trustees in the new millennium. We will discuss how surplus returns should affect employee benefit plans, closely examine the processes for selection and evaluation of investment managers, investigate legal concerns with fund investment and management policies, as well as explore the benefits and pitfalls of a wide variety of investment strategies. 

Although attendance is not limited to those in the public sector, the conference takes aim at topics that are of particular relevance to public pension funds. We will discuss how surplus returns should affect employee benefit plans, closely examine the processes for selection and evaluation of investment managers, investigate legal concerns with fund investment and management policies, as well as explore the benefits and pitfalls of a wide variety of investment strategies. By focusing on an atmosphere of education rather than sales or marketing, the Public Funds Summit provides a unique environment in which members of the public sector can exchange ideas and learn from other delegates, money managers and consultants.
