Annual Global Funds Conference 2016 – Marking 25 Years for Irish Funds
This year’s Irish Funds Annual Global Conference will take place Thursday, 23 June in Dublin. This conference is a landmark in the international funds industry calendar and attracts a wide range of participants and prominent industry speakers to discuss current opportunities and challenges facing the international investment funds community. The conference will be followed by a dinner in the evening and we will also be hosting a pre-conference golf event on Wednesday, 22 June. For asset managers, distributors and investors there will also be an Irish Funds distribution workshop on the morning of Friday, 24 June. A small number of sponsorship opportunities are available for the annual conference and for other events.
This year is an important marker along a journey that all of our member firms and stakeholders have travelled together since 1991. It has culminated in the creation of a globally renowned funds centre, made possible by the hard work of successive generations of volunteers from our member firms, the elected council that has steered the association and a dedicated secretariat team. We have worked relentlessly to shape the environment in which the investment funds business has thrived and grown during the last 25 years. A symbol of the growth and breadth of expertise is 38 working groups, comprising 500+ member firm volunteers, that are doing everything from building position papers, raising standards, delivering education and training, as well as providing key promotional platforms to educate, discuss, and make people aware of what Ireland has to offer.
The conference will also be an opportunity to say thank you to our member volunteers and stakeholders, as well as all the people that we maintain relationships with that have helped to craft the industry into what it is today.
Irish Funds is the voice of the industry in Ireland and we’re a voice for the industry in Europe and beyond. Going forward into our next 25 years we want to build on the critical mass and the excellent capabilities that we’ve developed so far. With your help we believe we can do just that and we look forward to seeing you in June. You can register for the conference here.
