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.

 

Request an invitation

 

Nominations were open for the seven categories through July 27. Finalists were announced on September 5 as selected by the Institutional Investor editorial team. Voting, by qualified asset allocators only, began that day and will continue until October 19. Winners will be announced at the Allocators’ Choice Awards on November 29, held at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City.
