What if you knew what went wrong?

You are in the meeting with a potential investor. You or your investor relations person worked hard to get you that appointment, and finally the day has come and you have done your pitch, either in a physical meeting or virtually.

You gave your best, you shared all the right information, data points, examples, and why the investor should invest with you. And yet, the investor isn't following through.

Been there?

The three of us - Don Steinbrugge, CFA of Agecroft Partners, Matthias Knab from Opalesque and ProFundCom's Paul Das - have been part of hundreds, if not thousands of manager presentations.

We have identified three areas most managers struggle with in their E-Capintro/Webinar/Video and live presentations which we'll be going through at this free manager workshop Thursday Nov. 4th 11am ET / 8 am PT / 3pm UK and 4pm CET.

More than anything, it's the mindset which determines an investor's ability to achieve towering returns and long-term success.

Few are better equipped to explore the mindset of the world's greatest investors than William Green, who has interviewed, studied and befriended more than fifty of the leading global investors over the last 25 years. William authored “The Great Minds of Investing” (2015) and most recently "RICHER, WISER, HAPPIER: How the World's Greatest Investors Win in Markets and Life," which examines how to stack the odds in our favor so we can build lives that are truly successful and abundant. The book is already a global bestseller, has received extraordinary customer reviews on Amazon (https://amzn.to/2TzH9BC), and is currently being translated into 12 languages.

In this interactive INVESTOR WORKSHOP, William Green and Matthias Knab will dive into the “Habits of Mind” of remarkable Billionaire Investors and distill five key strategies of their mental make-up which can enrich us financially, professionally and personally.

How millennials are changing the investment business - South Africa Roundtable

Many institutional investors have turned their attention toward private markets, and so over time the conversation has moved from, "There are not enough asset classes to generate a real return!" to a now pro-active "What else is outside the traditional box?" sentiment, and alternatives begin to stand out.

This Roundtable also discusses how millennials are further changing the investment industry, starting with changes in information flow and the presentation of data, virtual fact sheets, increased use of technology, to the point of disrupting intermediary partners' business models. The group also gives recommendations how to deal with the resulting reduced attention span of investors and intermediaries.
