Our 2015 Attendees Say It Best!

"Fund forum is a unique gathering of senior practitioners in the Asian markets who meet to discuss current critical trends and issues facing investors, fund managers, distributors and service providers. Over very many years the forum has recognized that whilst global trends and practices are relevant and important, these must be viewed in context of the Asian distribution and investor preference landscape. This requires adaptation and a deep understanding of the way business is organized and conducted in Asia. The Fund Forum occupies a unique position in the industry’s annual calendar and is a must attend event for firms serious about participating and contributing to the growing needs of Asia’s investors"
