Tiburon's Managing Principal, Charles "Chip" Roame, will open Tiburon CEO Summit XX by addressing the state of the financial services industry. Mr. Roame's comments will address both current events around the economy and regulatory reform, as well as more secular trends involving products such as exchange traded funds and markets and distribution channels such as breakaway brokers.
Tiburon's CEO Summits have come to support three central themes, including Focusing on Consumer (and Other Client) Needs, Challenging Conventional Industry Wisdom (Innovation), and Taking Responsibility. Tiburon recognizes industry executives who exemplify these attributes.
At Tiburon CEO Summit XX, Tiburon will present its third annual Tiburon CEO Summit Awards to:
- Jack Bogle (Founder, The Vanguard Group)
- Mark Casady (CEO, LPL Financial)
Tiburon CEO Summit XX will also include the following guest speakers:
- Keith Banks (President, US Trust)
- Charles Brandes (Chairman, Brandes Investment Partners)
- David Carroll (Senior Executive Vice President, Wells Fargo Corporation)
- Ric Edelman (CEO, Edelman Financial Services)
- Ed Finn (President, Barron's)
- Allen Thorpe (Managing Director, Hellman & Friedman)
Tiburon CEO Summit XX will also feature the firm's traditional client-centric panel discussions, a CEO Summit insights panel with four Tiburon clients, five less formal breakout sessions, and two networking-based social events.
"Tiburon's CEO Summits provide a unique opportunity for a select cross-industry group of senior executives to discuss a broad swath of issues regarding the future of the banking, insurance, brokerage, investments, advice, and wealth management businesses," explained Roame. "The CEO Summits provide one of the only true forums where financial services industry CEOs from across traditional industry silos gather to discuss business opportunities. The list of business relationships resulting from prior Tiburon CEO Summits is impressive. This will be our biggest, and perhaps our best, Tiburon CEO Summit to date."
