Unlike the majority of institutional investor conferences, which are sponsored by a single brokerage house or investment bank, Intellisight is funded primarily by institutional investors. Previous year’s sponsors have included Disciplined Growth Investors, Mairs & Power, Speece Thorson Capital Group, and Peregrine Capital Management.
“Our introduction of the ESG track last year proved to be a great success,” says Karen Florez, CFA, Manager of Investments for The Minneapolis Foundation. “This year we are going to include content relevant to both institutional and individual investors. There will also be an “Intro to Impact“ session and the opportunity to meet with more impact investment companies and fund providers.”
In addition to the ESG track, Intellisight 2017 will once again feature tracks for equity, fixed income and municipal bond investors. For a full roster of presenting companies, and to register for the event, please visit http://gointellisight.org.
To-date, our premier conference partners include Business Wire and IPREO. To partner with us please call or email us for additional information.
