Description: Rapid and profound changes are taking shape in the investment management industry as it confronts disruptive forces—technological advances, shifts in investor preferences, changes in return expectations, and demographic shifts. These forces will make the investment profession of tomorrow very different from the one we know today.

The profession’s future is further complicated by the commoditization of investment services, downward pressure on fees, and misaligned business models that overlook some of the customers' needs. Now, it has become even more imperative to raise awareness of these issues to ensure that the financial industry puts the interests of the investors before its own and functions to facilitate the real economy.

The SEC Thailand and CFA Society Thailand acknowledge the need for the industry to put the interests of investors first. On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of SEC Thailand and the 15th anniversary of CFA Society Thailand, both organizations are co-hosting a conference to commemorate these anniversaries and discuss the increasingly important theme of Putting Investors First.

The Thailand Investment Conference 2017 aims to set the direction of the Thai investment community on these important issues and provide a platform of conversations among all market participants, including asset owners, managers, intermediaries, and regulators. The conference will address crucial questions facing our industry today: What can we do to ensure that we put investors first? What are companies’ board and management obligations to investors? What discipline should be expected of market participants and regulators? Join us for a stimulating discussion of these topics, and help move the industry towards a higher standard.
