CAIS Founder and CEO Matt Brown will moderate a private session on “The Future of Wealth Management” at the conference discussing industry trends such as the rapid acceleration of technology, the broadening of access to new investment opportunities and the importance of transforming financial education. The best minds in wealth management will address the most urgent challenges the industry faces and the most exciting opportunities to drive the wealth management community forward through education, innovation, and transparency. “We are excited that the Milken Institute continues to focus attention on the wealth management community, which we believe validates the critical role the industry plays in the world’s economic, social, and political environment,” said Matt Brown, Founder and CEO of CAIS.
CAIS will livestream select panels from the Global Milken Conference through its CAIS IQ Center. This incldes in depth conversations around several of the Milken Institute’s “Power of Ideas” with longer form essays, interviews and videos from thought leaders, including, Igor Tulchinsky (Millennium), Mohit Joshi (Infosys), Jimmy Etheredge (Accenture (News – Alert)) and Linda Goler Blount (Black Women’s Health Imperative). The CAIS IQ Center is a dedicated, interactive community where attendees can stream live video content from the conference as well as access courses on the CAIS IQ platform.
“It is a privilege to work with the Milken Institute as we help financial advisors augment their approach to education,” said Andrew Smith Lewis, Chief Innovation Officer of CAIS. “The Milken Institute conference will highlight input from society’s most respected thought leaders. Our ability to amplify some of that content conforms with our view that RIAs and similar professionals are being underserved by traditional methods of learning as they explore new areas to protect and grow client interests and secure their own businesses.”
