For the past two decades, IMN has created some of the most essential industry events for the asset management space and we are proud to continue that tradition in 2017 with our flagship event. Serving as the industry's longest running indexing and ETF event, Global Indexing & ETFs 2017 will once again return to the Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, CA, on June 25-27.

New for 2017: IMN is proud to announce its partnership with Ritholtz Wealth Management on the program this year as we expand its coverage to delve deeper into data-driven strategies and evidence-based investing methodologies – an inherent component of indexing and exchange-traded fund’s modus operandi. Building on the success of our inaugural Evidence-Based Investing (EBI) conference this autumn, Global Indexing & ETFs will feature a dedicated track of panels focused on the rise of EBI's influence in the marketplace; a must-attend for financial advisors and anyone looking to improve their investment decision-making process.

The investment industry is disruptive by nature and subject to rapid changes. Global Indexing & ETFs is excited to be harnessing this disruption and innovating our offering as we provide you access to the most actionable intelligence from the industry’s keenest minds – indeed we anticipate having one of the most impressive speaker faculties in the event’s long and proud history this year.  All of which is to say we look forward to hosting a cross-section of industry practitioners - institutional investors and asset owners, index providers, ETF issuers, asset managers, exchanges, technology solutions providers, retail investment advisors, academics and more – in California this June as we turn the next page on this fantastic industry’s exciting story.
