While the capital market upheaval of 2008 and 2009 has come to a close with substantial gains in public equity valuations, investors are left with troubling questions about the markets they are facing in 2010. What kind of information does the institutional equity investor need to navigate the new year successfully? What events in the financial maelstrom were unique, and which represent permanent changes that will require adaptation and ongoing management?

The first event in the 2010 Capital IQ Investor Leadership Series will take place in Chicago on March 25. This initial forum will examine how different strategies performed in 2009 and map out ways to enhance the ones that excelled and recalibrate the ones that did not.

Equity managers and data analysts at mutual funds, hedge funds, and retirement funds are especially welcome to the eight forum events to be presented from March through October of 2010.

Capital IQ’s program gives portfolio managers and other decision makers the opportunity to learn from industry leaders who together represent many decades of experience in all aspects of long equity investing, including mathematical and statistical modeling, data management, portfolio optimization, and trading.
