Janet L. Yellen joins us as a Speaker

“Productivity growth, 
however it occurs, has a disruptive side to it.”
“Will capitalist economies operate at full employment in the absence of routine intervention? Certainly not.”
“To me, a wise and humane policy is occasionally to let inflation rise even when inflation is running above target.”

Why Attend?

For thirty years we held our Annual Investment Conference in New York City. In 2018, we're moving it to Toronto. It’s a new location for us, one that reflects our determination to uncover new opportunities, listen to your feedback and visit our Canadian roots. While the location has changed, our dedication to creating a forum where you can meet the leading minds in the world of finance and address the biggest questions facing the global investment industry remains the same. One of our delegates put it simply, “It’s the best conference out there.” Our annual investment conference is an unrivaled opportunity to learn about global investment strategies, develop through exposure to experts and build your network.

Learn

You'll learn global investment strategies from the experts. We select speakers with wide-ranging perspectives who can share specialist insight and keep you engaged. Their outlooks reflect years of investment experience and knowledge gained in complex situations and challenging markets. We’re confident you'll leave the conference inspired by new investment ideas.

Develop

The entire conference is backed by us, the world’s foremost independent investment research firm. Our own strategists and leading investment experts from across the globe will offer you new ideas, unexpected insights and detailed research. The conference delivers an unbeatable combination of analysis and views that will help you develop a winning investment strategy. 

CFA Institute members that attend the Annual BCA Conference can claim 13 CE credits for the event. Please self-document your continuing professional development activities using the online CE tracker

 

Connect

Finally, the ambience and experience of our two-day conference is always fantastic. Our Toronto conference will attract investment professionals from North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Asia-Pacific.

Not only is it a great opportunity to learn global investment strategies from our experts and meet others across the investment community, it’s a place where people come together to share stories and investment ideas.
