An All Asset Class Discussion with Special Emphasis on Rapidly Evolving Crypto Currency and Alternative Investments

Wharton invites you to our 2nd annual panel discussion covering topics that are relevant today and in planning for the future.  This year’s insights will be delivered by an exceptional panel of industry experts from across the country. They will cover a variety of asset classes, including more progressive categories such as crypto currencies and other alternative investments

As expected, this will be a first-class evening with a catered reception followed by insights with a depth you cannot ascertain elsewhere, presented in the comfort of the exclusive Federal Reserve Executive Dining Room. Wharton's own Scott Miller will guide the panel discussion with a series of probing questions, and will close the event with an engaging Q&A session with the audience.

We are pleased to have returning Event Sponsor, CAPTRUST Financial Advisors and new Panel Sponsor, J.P. Morgan Private Bank.

Special Thank You to Event Sponsor:

In 1989, the founders of CAPTRUST joined together to provide private and institutional investors an independent and objective choice for financial advice and fiduciary support.

CAPTRUST is a national firm with offices throughout Texas, and in major markets throughout the U.S. Today, CAPTRUST advises on over $300 billion in assets. Serving clients in all 50 states, CAPTRUST’s focus is on Wealth Management, Endowments and Foundations, and Retirement Plans.

The firm was built on the premise that investors are best served by advisors who are motivated to focus exclusively on the best interests of their clients. This commitment to independence and transparency has enabled CAPTRUST to grow from the vision of its entrepreneurial founders to one of the largest independent advisory firms in the country.

CAPTRUST believes investment advisory firms are only as strong as the people who create the advice. As the demands of a global economy and a vastly underfunded retirement system converge on institutions, corporations, and individual investors alike, CAPTRUST believes advice focused solely on investment performance will fall woefully short in helping clients navigate the road ahead with confidence.
