2023 MMI Emerging Asset Managers Forum

May 11-12, 2023 | Denver, CO | Hilton Denver City Center
Charged admission | Open to members and non-members | Closed to media

Robbie Cannon, Founder, Board Member, Horizon Investments
Steven Carl, Principal, Chief Distribution Officer, Chairman of the Executive Committee, Madison Investments

Mark Rewey, Director of Marketing & Business Development, Segall Bryant & Hamill

This unique event is geared toward senior executives at asset management firms with less than $25 billion in intermediary advisory assets. As always, the centerpiece of the Forum will be a series of small-group roundtable discussions that put you face-to-face with representatives from leading wirehouse, national, TAMP and other sponsor firms.

You will also hear from industry experts and leaders on the critical distribution, product, and operational issues that are top of mind with emerging asset managers in today's extremely fluid business and market environment.

We hope you will join us and spread the word to colleagues within your own firm and around the industry. Non-members are welcome!
