OMAHA, Neb., May 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Northern Lights Distributors, LLC ("NLD") is a Platinum Sponsor of Pershing, LLC's INSITE™ 2015 conference, which will take place June 3-5 at the Hyatt Regency Orlando (www.INSITE2015.com). Executives from four NLD client firms are speaking on a panel at the conference.
The INSITE 2015 sponsorship is part of the NLD key accounts team's ongoing effort to deliver product and sales opportunities to the firm's clients. In addition to conference sponsorships, the key accounts team consults on all stages of the distribution process, from creation of share classes to sales planning. The team also advocates for product placement on behalf of clients by leveraging new and existing intermediary relationships.
"Conference sponsorships are a valuable form of marketing for our clients, placing them center-stage to discuss their expertise and strategies before an audience of financial advisors who can connect them with investors," said Alma Piscitello, Senior Vice President of Strategic Relationships at NLD, who leads the key accounts team. "We will continue to elevate sponsorship levels at industry events to provide our clients with the networking opportunities and increased visibility they need to reach targeted investors for their funds. This is another way we enhance the overall experience for our clients so they can focus on growing and managing their investment strategies."
The representatives from NLD clients will participate in a one-hour panel discussion at INSITE 2015 entitled "Connecting the Dots in a World Full of New and Unconventional Strategies," which is scheduled for June 5 at 9:15 a.m. The managers will share insights into how financial advisors can effectively explain the potential benefits of unconstrained, alternative investment strategies to their clients.
