2019 FOX Global Investment Forum

Agenda | ExhibitorsPresenters | Venue & Accommodations | Materials


The 2019 FOX Global Investment Forum™ brings together the most sophisticated investors of private capital across the FOX community, as family offices forge a distinct approach to their investing in the midst of market uncertainty.

With an expanded, two-day format, attendees will have an opportunity to hear what is on the mind of the wealth owner, explore leading trends in investing, and engage in speed networking with investment managers. There will be ample opportunity for FOX investors to meet and share their thinking across topics of common interest with peer exchange sessions at the Forum and curated social events for members.

  • Ten years after the global financial crisis, investment markets are at a critical point. Volatility has reemerged in this late stage of the economic cycle, triggered by what appears to be decelerating growth in the United States and across the globe. Policy actions and the “noise” of 24/7 news generate outsize market reactions. Professor Adam Tooze will kick off the Forum, presenting from his recently published book, Crashed: How a Decade of Financial Crises Changed the World.
  • With the backdrop of continued market uncertainty, family offices are forging their own path. This Forum will highlight sophisticated family office leaders who are committed to less conventional investment approaches. A real estate industry expert, Douglas Poutasse, will share economic research and discuss risks and opportunities for late stage real estate investing. PIMCO’s Libby Cantrill will discuss global challenges to investors through a political and economic lens, including the rise of populist movements and challenges to democratic institutions around the world.
  • Breakout sessions will focus on various direct investing topics, as well as topics for those that delegate to external managers/advisors.
  • An exciting new format, Speed Dating for Managers, will allow attendees to learn about several interesting investment strategies.
