Canada’s pre-eminent networking and information event for the mutual funds industry.

The IFIC Annual Leadership Conference is back with an exciting line up of speakers, panelists and topics. We promise to expand your knowledge and stimulate your thinking with informative and relevant sessions featuring influential industry leaders, senior regulators and innovators. The sessions will cover key topics such as the future of active and passive management, sustaining and disruptive technologies as agents of business efficiency, insights into the regulators’ agendas, and more. Ongoing trends will be examined from the viewpoints and perspectives of key industry players.

Our morning session will include the Leaders Panel where industry innovators will discuss key industry trends, threats and opportunities. The International Panel will feature panelists sharing insider updates on the impact of global regulatory reforms, specifically in the U.S. and the U.K. in comparison to Canada. The morning will also feature our new panel on active and passive investing called Active and Passive: Dual or Duelling Strategies?
