Success in the CIO suite creates a unique challenge: The number of people you can turn to for guidance rapidly diminishes.

 

The Institutional Investor Masterclass aims to mitigate this challenge.

 

For the afternoon before the Allocators’ Choice Awards, we will bring together an elite group of 100 asset allocators, along with a select group of asset managers, to discuss, debate, and tackle institutional investing’s intractable problems.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The nomination process was open from July 9 until August 5. Finalists were announced August 21, selected by the Institutional Investor editorial team. Voting on winners, by qualified asset allocators via the Institutional Investor Network, will be open until October 15. Winners will be announced at the Allocators’ Choice Awards on November 28, held at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City.
