Events

In 2019 the overarching theme for our institutional domestic events is differentiation in a dislocating world. The premise of this theme is to guide the curation of our conferences so they are relevant to asset owner decision makers and provide different perspectives and insights – as distinct from noise.

We want our delegates to recognise that no matter how wise we all think we are, we each have cognitive biases and are subject to increasing noise. Differentiation is critical as we move towards a world that appears more dislocated, as de-globalisation continues and risk management receives greater focus.

We want to expose asset owners to ideas, themes and insights that challenge understanding and decision-making processes.

What Our Asset Owner Partners Say

Slide Ian Patrick Chief investment officer Sunsuper At Sunsuper we receive a lot of value from the Conexus Financial events particularly the breadth of the forum focus areas, practical agenda development, sharp investor focus and incisive exploration of issues. Slide James Cook Director of investments UCA Funds Management Good array of speakers and topics. Interactive sessions worked well, too. Was pretty well paced as well – better than the 8-to-6 grind, where everyone’s attention span drops. Slide David Bell Former CIO Mine Super I always enjoy Conexus events. It is not just about quality speakers – the comments from the floor really add to the sessions. I always find myself going back to work with a number of good ideas. Slide Mark Burgess Chair, investment committee HESTA Bringing together a range of leadership...Notable that sponsor content was high quality and well-pitched. Both topics and networking are key.
