The Financial Times, in partnership with FundFire and Ignites, presents the Third Annual Investment Management Summit. The event gathers top-ranked financial advisors from across North America to discuss the challenges and opportunities arising from current market conditions.

The latest equities rally has hit the proverbial brick wall. Recent data showing a slow-healing US economy, continued worries over eurozone debt, and disappointing growth in China has investors fleeing to low-yielding, safe haven assets. In addition, the upcoming election in the US has fueled speculation about its impact on fiscal policy and the greater economy. Careful analysis and due diligence can convert these concerns into opportunities.

Through insightful discussions and interactive roundtables, the Summit will identify solutions to these investment conundrums and explore ways to making an advisory practice successful. Join this group of thought leaders comprising industry professionals, academics, and economic specialists as they provide methods to overcome today's investment challenges and make your business more efficient.
