PPA Connect Awards has shortlisted the Fund Selector Summit Miami 2015, held at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Key Biscayne and organized by Funds Society in collaboration with Open Door Media, for the "launch of the year" award The presentation of the awards to the winning finalists will take place on December 7th in London, where the community of professional events’ organizers granting the awards, have their headquarters.
Funds Society’s Fund Selector Summit was the first event organized jointly by Funds Society, an online reference publication for the US Offshore market’s professional investors and Spanish language magazine distributed quarterly in the United States, and Open Door Media, publisher of a magazine for professional investors in the UK and an experienced organizer of events for financial professionals, in several European countries.
The union of the two parties has shown itself to be a perfect tandem as 11 international fund management companies sponsored an event which was attended by more than 50 fund selectors in May 2015. Throughout the two days, meetings were held between small groups of buyside professionals and a fund manager from each of the sponsoring institutions. There was time for presentations, questions, coffees, talks, exchanging business cards, cookouts in the hotel grounds, and to enjoy an excellent presentation by Javier Santiso.
The celebration of Funds Society’s Fund Selector Summit 2016 has been announced for the 28th and 29th of April at the same venue, and organizers hope to repeat last year’s success.
Thanks to all the sponsors who supported the event for making this possible: Amundi, Carmignac, Goldman Sachs Asset Management, Henderson Global Investors, NN Investment Partners, Lord Abbett, M & G Investments, Matthews Asia, Old Mutual Global Investors, Schroders and Robeco.
