Through FinTuition, I teach people around the world about securities lending. In particular, a well-informed beneficial owner community benefits the securities lending business, yet traditional educational and training formats are not suited to reaching wide audiences in an interactive environment.
While independent trainers such as myself must add value to keep our clients satisfied, it’s a challenge for conference speakers to balance the need to be interesting and informative without giving away any secrets or unashamedly promoting their firms. So knowledge transfer at conferences is often the victim, with little sharing of views, negligible debate and lots of “agreeing” with the other panellists. So attendees rely on networking with their service providers and peers to provide much of the event value. Clearly, networking is a critical feature of conferences. Yet, these days, time out of the office needs to show a demonstrable and clear benefit. Further, budgets are tight and everyone has to prioritise their spending.
To address the challenges of getting real education, fitting into the economic environment and optimising time out of the office, we have launched FinTuition Forums with a limited offer of No Cost Registration. FinTuition has teamed up with a number of leading market participants to launch the first FinTuition Forum, scheduled for June 13th in Boston at the Westin Copley Hotel.
FinTuition Forums combine sponsored, but independent training with panel sessions and guest speakers that can uniquely benefit the community. Drawing on FinTuition coursework and instructors, the attendees will get real value for time spent out of the office, while sponsors will be bringing valuable information to the marketplace and all will benefit from networking opportunities.
- Executive training and education will be at the event’s core and make up the first 5 hours
- Panel sessions will complete the final working portion of the day for open debate and discussion with panellists drawn from a wide pool of industry experts
- Attendees will take away written material that is more than just an agenda and company ads
- A networking cocktail reception will close out the day
- The audience will be restricted to beneficial owners, fund managers, the sponsors and the day’s speakers and co-educators
Thanks to our sponsors there are a limited number of places available at no cost to qualifying attendees. We have seen a mixture of delegates sign up – not everyone will need or want to attend the training sessions – they may only wish to attend the closing sessions. Many others want to make the most of the full day of leading edge information and discussion.
The agenda is as follows:
Executive Training 9:00-2:00
Alpha Generation vs. Risk: Assessing the Revenues and reviewing the Risk mitigants
Collateral: History and Changing Spectrum of Collateral
Risk vs. Reward: Assessing the Revenues and reviewing the Risk mitigants
Short Selling: Analysis and evidence surrounding this controversial issue
Roundtable Discussions & Presentations 2:00-5:00
Demand Drivers: Review of trends, opportunities and impact of regulations
Managing for Success: Changes driven by Market Participants
Shaping the Future: External factors impacting the Industry
Networking Reception 5:00 – 6:30
