Don Friedman is a long-time leader in the world of investment conferences. Great speaking faculties and top-notch agendas are the hallmarks of his events.

Joint Venture Events Group (JV Events) announced today the launch of the first conference management and events company with programs developed by investment and fund managers exclusively for financial advisors and institutional investors, with buyside-only attendance. The company’s product suite includes asset class-based conferences, roadshows and webinars aimed at buyside investors (RIAs, Registered Reps, Endowments, Foundations, Family Offices and Pension Plans) with assets ranging from $50 million - $100+ billion.

“We take pride in creating events which are 100% focused on investor education. The cornerstone of our success comes from putting ourselves in the shoes of a buyside investor. Put simply, as a fiduciary, which products, within a particular asset class, does it make sense to put your clients into and how do you explain these products in a simplistic way so your clients understand,” says Don Friedman, Founder and CEO of JV Events.

The company—which partners with fund managers and publishers within their respective asset classes—employs a strategy-focused format for its events. In addition, speakers must be Portfolio Managers, C-Level Executives, Portfolio Strategists or Analysts.

“Given our extensive experience in the conference space, we’ve determined that catering to “buyside-only” investor meetings creates a far more dynamic experience as investors are able to take a deep dive into the various strategies with the fund managers,” says Friedman.

Rick Lake, Co-Chairman, Lake Partners and the chairperson of JV Events Group upcoming Investing in Liquid Alternatives conference says, "Don Friedman is a long-time leader in the world of investment conferences. Great speaking faculties and top-notch agendas are the hallmarks of his events."

“With a database of 200,000 buyside investor names and strong relationships in both the active and passive investment communities, we’re excited, at JV Events, to educate a wider array of buyside investors and provide them with the opportunity to better tailor their due diligence efforts and fulfill their investment objectives,” says Mr. Friedman.
