ICBI first launched FundForum in July 1990 and has been held annually ever since, making the 2012 event its 22nd year running – as such, it is the longest running mutual fund event in Europe. It is now the largest event of its kind with over 1300 global asset managers, distributors, analysts, advisors, academics and other leading experts participating each year.
Intellectual capital has always been the cornerstone of ICBI’s value proposition – based on extensive original one to one research every year with a wide range of distributors and producers – the conclusions ensure FundForum event programmes are as relevant and topical as can be for every year.
The speaker faculty is renowned for comprising the most senior players of the global fund industry. Faculty members typically include CEOs / CIOs / Fund Managers and senior executives from the Fund Manufacturers, Multi-Managers, Fund of Funds, Retail & Private Banks, Insurance Companies, Fund Platforms, Investment Banks, Custodians, Transfer Agents, & their advisors.
Feeding off FundForum International's success, FundForum Asia & FundForum Middle East were successfully launched in 2007, followed in 2008 by FundForum Latin America & FundForum USA. Over 3,000 attendees now attend the events each year.
