"It was my pleasure to participate in this year’s Fund Forum Asia conference. I think it is a great forum with good speakers and well-prepared.[…] I, myself also learn a lot from it"
"I thought this year’s conference was a particularly good one – Great speaker line-up, and very good selection of topics"
FundForum Asia 2014 brought you the most authoritative voices in the industry
The most comprehensive and interactive programme for the industry
For networking opportunities with key gatekeepers from the leading retail and private banks, IFA platforms and insurance companies in Asia
Delegates could choose between these 2 information packed summits, or for a little extra switch between the two!
"I had a very good overall impression from the event, and found many of the speakers to be engaging, especially the guest speakers from outside the industry"
"It was a very good event and feels like it has gained its own unique identity and stride. I had last attended in 2012 and am glad to see the change in venue and developments in the agenda. Certainly a good dynamic as this market is evolving so much more quickly than other places."
"Many thanks for having me in the FundForum conference. It was really one of the most well organized conferences I have seen in terms of the quality of speakers, thematic content covered and breadth of participants attending it. I was very glad to have been part of it and will continue to engage with you for future conferences"
"I thought this year was even better than previous years. Large audience; lots of exhibitors; good speakers. You continue to put a good distance between FFA and the other “wannabe” conferences out there. Well done!"
You told us that networking was paramount to your experience
We built more time into the programme to ensure delegates were able to meet the people who mattered most to them and their businesses. Whether through informal networking, or a more bespoke approach there was something that suited all tastes including planning a meeting at the coffee house, signing-up for a networking roundtable, or for a more tailored offering, booking a Meet-Suite.
You told us that you wanted more in-depth intellectual take-away
Our new-look 2014 programme contained several opportunities for a more in-depth debate with our Asia Concepts Boardroom Sessions, The Roundtable Workstreams, Breakfast Briefings, and the FundForum Big Ideas Task Force to name but a few.
You told us that you wanted your part of the debate
In 2014 we factored in more live polling during our summits and plenary panels, more time for audience Q&A, and more face-time with our speakers than ever before, to keep our speakers on their toes.
You told us that you wanted more face-to-face time with speakers
During the Meet the Expert Lunchtables, Networking roundtables and Off The Record With... sessions the 2014 attendees had the opportunity to put questions to some of the leading voices in the Asian asset and wealth management industry.
You told us you wanted more bespoke networking
FundForum "One2One" Targeted Business Meeting - please contact James Roberts firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
You told us that China was a key focus for your business
In response to this we run our very successful China Summit for an in-depth look at the most significant market in Asia.
