The Global Investment Conference
April 3-5, 2019


Fairmont Empress

The 2019 Global Investment Conference will take place from April 3-5, 2019 at the newly renovated Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, BC. For 24 years, the Global Investment Conference has been a forum for leading Canadian Defined Benefit Plan decision-makers to attend expert sessions on investing in the global context.

This conference will bring together experts and thought leaders to discuss unique perspectives and approaches to defined benefit pension fund investing. The Global Investment Conference will present leading edge investment research and will explore new global investment approaches, ideas and unique strategies that benefit large Canadian pension plan organizations.

Who Should Attend this Event?

The conference is an exclusive, educational forum that brings together senior representatives of Canadian pension plan sponsors, as well as representatives from the academic and money management communities.

How Do I Attend?

Participation is by invitation-only.

However, a select number of invitations are available.

For invitation information, please email Alison Webb, publisher of Canadian Investment Review, for consideration.

Canadian Investment Review is Canada's leading forum for academics, institutional investors and industry practitioners to exchange ideas on the capital markets, investment and economic theory and the related sociology and demographics. To that end, it publishes articles that offer original ideas based on existing literature and brings new insight to relevant themes and practices within the institutional investment community.


Since the creation of Canada's first Executive MBA in 1968, the Beedie School of Business has championed lifelong learning, productive change and the need to be innovative as we deliver research and teaching that makes an impact. That we have achieved some measure of success is confirmed by our accreditation by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), and by receiving the EQUIS Quality award from the EFMD (European Federation for Management Development), globally recognized accrediting agencies for business schools. Less than 1% of business schools worldwide have earned both of these international accreditations.
