This event is by invitation only.
The times we live in bring enormous challenges, as well as opportunities, for investors who must make decisions with impacts years into the future. Several leading sovereign wealth funds, which have some of the longest investment horizons, will be in Boston to share their experiences in a special invitation-only discussion of the “long view” of global investment. Do long-term investors earn higher returns? What challenges does a long horizon present to managers and other stakeholders? How do significant non-market risks – climate change, political uncertainties like Brexit, cyber-attacks – drive views of future risks? What does “disruption” mean and how will it impact long-term returns? K&L Gates and co-host the CFA Society of Boston, along with SovereigNET at the Fletcher School, Tufts University, are pleased to invite you to explore the opportunities and challenges of long-term investing through the eyes of three leading sovereign wealth funds – GIC Private of Singapore, the New Zealand Superannuation Fund, and the Alaska Permanent Fund. The discussion will be facilitated by Sarah Williamson, CEO of Boston-based Focusing Capital on the Long Term. This engaging session has been organized in cooperation with the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds. A cocktail reception will immediately follow the session with ample opportunity for continued dialogue with the experts. The Fletcher School is a graduate school of international affairs with nearly a century of training future leaders at the highest level of government, finance and policy. SovereigNET, The Fletcher Network for Sovereign Wealth and Global Capital, is a unique interdisciplinary network dedicated to the study of sovereign and public investment and its impact on global capital markets.
