Description: Evidence-Based Investing Conference (West) is a part of the Global Indexing & ETFs conference.

Evidence-Based Investing (EBI) is a disciplined approach to asset management that combines the data we have from the past and present with honesty about the unknowable future. Where others would use forecasts, relationships or emotions to guide their decisions, practitioners of EBI would substitute facts, logic and reason.

With interest rates slowly coming off all-time lows throughout much of the developed world, investment decision-makers are having a difficult time ensuring that their clients, trustees and beneficiaries can meet the needs of organizations and individuals through their investments.

On top of a difficult investment landscape, asset allocators have tens of thousands of strategies, fund structures, advisors, consultants, financial firms, markets and asset classes to choose from these days, not to mention the plethora of sales and marketing teams constantly trying to sell new and exciting products and services. Finding the signal in the noise is a challenge that many investors struggle with when trying to figure out who to trust, what to invest in, how to allocate their assets and how to reach their goals.

This event will cut through the hype and focus exclusively on evidence-based investing to give investment decision-makers a better understanding of how to view the financial markets and the various investment strategies at their disposal.
