Resilience is the word that comes to mind when we look at the world today and the events of the past year. Resilience is also the theme of our 25th annual (virtual) investment conference. It encompasses our collective hope that endurance will win over hardship.

We hope you can join us on Tuesday, May 4 and Wednesday, May 5 from the comfort of your (home) office as we commemorate our 35th year as a firm and reflect on the last 14 months. Please visit the registration site for a detailed agenda of this year’s event, including our distinguished lineup of experts as we explore the changes and challenges of our new normal.

Still in two minds? Maybe a sneak peek into our list of speakers will help: get a lay of the investment landscape from Jean Hynes, who is poised to become the first woman to lead Wellington Management, a Boston-based firm that manages over $1 trillion in assets. Need some additional perspective? NEPC Chief Investment Officer, Tim McCusker, will take you through 3,000 years of investing history in 30 minutes. And if you think there’s more to life than just the economics of it, we agree. That’s why we will hear from Laurie Santos, a cognitive scientist and professor at Yale University whose course—Psychology and the Good Life—became the most popular one in the school’s history. We will also provide you with opportunities to virtually network with your peers and meet with your NEPC advisors. And that’s just Day 1.

Come back for more on Day 2, as Seema Hingorani, a managing director at Morgan Stanley Investment Management and founder and chair of Girls Who Invest, discusses the benefits of gender diversity in the investment world. Afterwards, listen in on a series of breakout sessions hosted by our consulting and asset-class specialists covering a gamut of topics, ranging from investing in China, crypto currency, to the future of real estate, impact investing, and the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion in the work place. We will end with a rousing panel with some of NEPC’s finest answering your investment questions.

We hope to ‘see’ you next month as we look back (and ahead) on these unprecedented times. While there’s a lot that remains uncertain in this world, one thing we are sure of: our combined resilience will get us through.
