The 4th Annual Nordics Institutional Forum is an educational initiative designed through close coordination with the region’s leading institutional investors to build peer communities that merge global best practices with local expertise. The forum is specially designed to bring together 70+ staff members, investment officers, board members, and trustees representing Nordic-based institutional investors.
