The Ohio 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. In a Group Live setting, the forum is designed to bring together roughly 75 staff members, investment officers, board members, and trustees representing Ohio.

The forum's agenda was developed through extensive local travel and feedback from the institutional investor community including executive directors, chief investment officers, senior finance and investment staff, general counsels and trustees representing institutional asset owners across public and corporate pension plans, endowments, foundations, insurance portfolios, healthcare plans, and investment consultants.

In a closed door and non-salesy environment the forum provides a platform for peer to peer knowledge exchange for the local institutional investor community. Our content is constantly updated to reflect the latest in investments, plan management and fiduciary responsibilities.

Program learning objectives: to come away with the latest knowledge and understanding of 9 key investment classes, including smart beta, pension fund management, multi-asset allocation trends, fund operational issues, global equity market landscapes, alternative investments, and more.

Although the program is designed for advanced level participants with education of at least a bachelor’s degree, at least 5 years of experience in finance and advanced preparation in investments, advanced preparation is not required.
