Finance professionals will have the rare opportunity to attend a Who’s Who of financial industry leaders next month. On March 29, 2012, a host of notable speakers will gather to discuss and debate key issues in investments at the second annual Global Asset Management Education (G.A.M.E.) II Forum. “This is the first academia-hosted event of this magnitude in New York City,” said Dr. David Sauer, managing director and program chair, citing top names in the field such as Guy Adami (of CNBC’s “Fast Money”) and Abby Cohen (president of the Global Markets Institute and senior investment strategist at Goldman Sachs)—to name a few.
This day-long, information-packed forum, will take place at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers and feature 16 keynote speakers—each experts in their respective fields. Conference topics will include the economy, alternative assets, stock markets, and corporate governance. While professionals will undoubtedly benefit from this incredible experience, students will be exposed to the world of expert finance. G.A.M.E. II provides an international group of college students, faculty, and investment professionals with a chance to gain insights from the respected industry frontrunners they will one day stand beside. “This will be a unique opportunity to network with high-profile industry leaders and future colleagues from around the country,” Sauer noted.
Keynote speakers also include moderator, Dr. Bob Froehlich, executive vice president & chief investment strategist for wealth management at The Hartford; Tobias M. Levkovich, managing director, chief US equity strategist for Citi Investment Research; and John Rogers, president and chief executive officer at CFA Institute. A full list of keynote speakers can be found here.
Students and their faculty advisors are also invited to attend two additional days of workshops, breakout discussion panels, and keynote perspectives targeted specifically to them. A student-managed portfolio competition is also open to student teams that have managed an actual portfolio during the 2011 calendar year.
Last year’s G.A.M.E. forum drew over 1,000 attendees, with 68 companies providing 92 content providers (including keynote speakers, panelists, workshop presenters, and judges.)
