Institutional Investor Events is proud to announce the 4th Annual Mutual Fund Forum on June 6, 2007 and 2nd Annual Fund Governance Forum on June 7, 2007 at the Harmonie Club in New York City.
The 10 trillion dollar mutual fund industry has tripled itself in just the last 12 years. With more and more investors surging into this booming marketplace there is great demand for mutual funds to provide them with effective and efficient access to the securities markets. These 2007 joint mutual fund forums hosted by Institutional Investor Events examine vital industry challenges affecting governance, profitability, technology, regulatory compliance and more from both an industry-wide and a director's perspective.
The 4th Annual Mutual Fund Forum, produced in association with Fund Action, tackles key issues currently facing the mutual fund industry. Through individual presentations and interactive panel debates, attendees hear from leading mutual fund professionals about managing risk while operating effectively and profitably within today's onerous regulatory environment. This year's Mutual Fund Forum sessions include:
- Managing conflicts of interest within mutual funds
- Implementing a risk based approach for achieving compliance with 22c-2
- Successfully reporting up to the board
- Examining the use of derivatives within mutual funds
- Remaining competitive when outsourcing
Produced in association with The Mutual Fund Directors' Forum and Fund Directions, the 2nd Annual Fund Governance Forum brings together leading fund directors to discuss and debate the ever changing role and demands of the mutual fund director. Sessions include:
- Director oversight of securities lending and derivatives strategies
- Examining the role of directors in approving Rule 12b-1 plans
