ATLANTA, Aug. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The multi-trillion-dollar institutional investment landscape is evolving. Investors and consultants are looking at new markets and managers for returns and portfolio diversity. Alternatives and private equity continue to play larger roles. Investors, consultants and managers are increasingly using data and online tools to research opportunities, connect and make decisions. All this change leads professionals in the industry to ask "What now"? and "What's next"? The eVestment EI3 Conference aims to help answer those questions.
For two days beginning Nov. 11, Atlanta will be the epicenter of the global institutional investment industry as hundreds of industry professionals gather at the eVestment EI3 Conference.

Confirmed speakers include Wharton Professor of Finance Jeremy Siegel; technology strategist Salim Ismail; Ron Clark Academy Founder Ron Clark; Segal Rogerscasey Senior Vice President and Chief Investment Officer Timothy Barron; Towers Watson Global Head of Manager Research Luba Nikulina; and Slocum Director of Capital Markets Research-Global Equity Greg Stalsberg.
Attendees will also hear about the latest trends in investment data and analytics from eVestment leaders, including co-founders Jim Minnick, Matt Crisp and Heath Wilson; eVestment Vice President and Head of Research Peter Laurelli; and eVestment Vice President and Head of Product Strategy Ben Olmstead.
"EI3 stands for eVestment institutional investment intelligence and that's what this conference will deliver," said eVestment Chief Marketing Officer Kathy Jaques. "This will be an opportunity for industry professionals to learn from their peers about the many ways the industry is changing and gain valuable perspectives on those changes and how to benefit from them going forward."
In addition to the keynotes, expert panels and other presentations, the conference will offer many opportunities for networking with other attendees. There will be a number of breaks and meals throughout the two days and a dinner and awards presentation the evening of Nov. 11 with entertainment from comedian and film and television star Kevin Nealon.
