Dear Subscribers,

As many of you have already noticed, Fund Operations and sister publication Fund Technology have been working together the last two months to organize the second – and newly named – Fund Operations & Technology Leader’s Summit for this fall.

In doing so, we’ve reached out to many of our loyal sources and contacts to join us as panelists and attendees (for those who have already signed on, we are very appreciative), but I wanted to take a moment to emphasize exactly why we’re doing this.

As part of my job, I attend the industry’s most well established conferences on behalf of the Investment Company Institute, National Investment Company Service Association and Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association.  These events cover some of the most important topics in the mutual fund operations world today. But what we wanted to do was create a more niche and intimate group setting where buyside operational, technology and compliance professionals could come together in an interactive format right here in New York City.

We have been working with our respective teams to bring you industry experts that span a wide skill range. Some of our speakers thus far include pros from:

  • Cramer Rosenthal McGlynn
  • Hartford Funds
  • OppenheimerFunds
  • Invesco
  • Broadridge

And for the keynote: Brad Carpenter of the FBI Cyber Division and Elizbeth Kelly of United Income (who was also a former special assistant to President Barack Obama).

We want to create a dynamic setting for ops and tech professionals to come together and share their insights. To do that, we need your help! We want to know who from your firm might be interested in joining us on a panel. And if you’re on the vendor or third-party provider side, we would be happy to discuss sponsorship opportunities with you so that practitioners from your firm can also join.

So, please, don’t be shy! I know from speaking with many of you that you all have valuable insights to share, and we hope to provide the platform to do so.

Click here to see the rest of the speakers, full agenda and location details for the event, which will take place on October 3. And feel free to reach me at to chat about how we can get you or your firm added to the list.

Thank you!
