SHREWSBURY, N.J., Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Financial Advisor and Private Wealth magazines are pleased to announce that Meredith Whitney has been added as a keynote speaker at the 2nd Annual Fiduciary Gatekeeper Research Manager Summit on October 11-12 at the Hyatt Regency Boston.
Other keynote speakers include Richard Bernstein, chief executive officer at Richard Bernstein Advisors LLC; James Grant, founder and editor of Grant's Interest Rate Observer; and Dr. Ed Yardeni, president, Yardeni Research, Inc.
The two-day conference allows financial advisors and other fiduciaries to meet in small groups with portfolio managers and speak directly with them about their investment approach. The conference is designed to improve the investment manager due diligence process by fostering communication between investment management firms and fiduciaries who select such managers for clients, build model portfolios and implement asset allocation strategies. The Fiduciary Gatekeeper Summit will be a showcase for the FA/PW Due Diligence All-Star Team, a group of research managers nominated for the recognition by readers of Financial Advisor and Private Wealth magazines.
The Gatekeeper Summit will be preceded by the Elite Wealth Management Conference October 9-10 in the same hotel. This conference, directed by Russ Alan Prince, a leading authority within the private wealth industry, will provide participants with insights and perspectives that can be used immediately. Discussion, guided analysis and case examples will make the session highly interactive and stimulating. The goal of the conference is to enable participants to be able to develop an elite wealth management platform and address the needs of the ultra-affluent quickly and profitably.
