DVFA 6th Investment Consultant Conference held in Frankfurt
On November 25th, 2014, the German society DVFA hosted the 6thInvestment Consultant Conference in Frankfurt. This annual conference is a meeting point for investment consultants and asset managers to discuss current issues of the industry. Again over 100 decision makers gathered under the headline “Fiduciary Management – Competition or Co-operation between Financial Consultants and Asset Managers”.
As usual the conference was structured in a keynote and two panel discussions followed by a get-together.
In his keynote, Divyesh K. Hindocha, Global Head of Product and DC from Schroders PLC spoke about the diversity of services offered by consultants and asset managers. He concluded that institutional investors can benefit from the variety of services, but choice might become harder.
The two panels were assembled by representatives of investment consultant and the asset management firms as well. Their main topic was fiduciary management – critically examined from both perspectives.
After a day of exiting and controversial discussions, panellists and participants came together for a cocktail party to carry on the talks in a pleasant atmosphere.
Next year’s Investment Consultant Conference is already scheduled for November 24th, 2015.
