As a collective force, institutional investors have enormous power to shape markets, inform policy and empower beneficiaries to have a better, more financially stable future.

The Fiduciary Investors Symposium acts as an advocate for fiduciary capitalism and the power of asset owners to change the nature of the investment industry, including addressing principal/agent and fee problems, stabilising financial markets, focusing on long-term investing and directing capital for the betterment of society and the environment. It enables asset owners from around the world to come together and explore investment themes, risks and opportunities with their global peers.

Held over three days, the event enables institutional investors to engage with industry thought leaders in academia and practice in a collegiate environment that promotes shared discussion. The on-campus venues facilitate a unique space for innovative thought and conversation, and the event includes tours of various university faculties.


Drawing on the esteemed Stanford faculty, and taking advantage of the Silicon Valley location, the event will look at the incredible disruption and opportunities presented by AI and technological advancement; as well as the core investment challenges of risk management, operational excellence and efficiency, and future-looking capital allocation and portfolio construction techniques.
