EN­DOW­MENT AS­SET MAN­AGE­MENT CON­FER­ENCE

25-27 August 2014, Her­ten­stein, Switzer­land

The In­sti­tut für Strategis­che Kapit­al­markt­forschung (ISK) at the Wirtschaft­suni­versität Wien presen­ted for its second time a unique and in­nov­at­ive con­fer­ence de­voted to the fron­ti­ers of re­search and prac­tice for en­dow­ment man­age­ment. Gen­er­ously fun­ded by the P&K Pühringer Ge­meinnützige Stif­tung, the con­fer­ence took place at the newly built Cam­pus Hotel Her­ten­stein at Lake Lu­cerne in Switzer­land. The pur­pose of the con­fer­ence was to bring to­gether lead­ing aca­demic re­search­ers and en­dow­ment prac­ti­tioner pro­fes­sion­als to dis­cuss top­ical re­search and to shape the fu­ture of ap­plied in­vest­ment re­search for en­dow­ments and long term in­vestors such as sov­er­eign wealth funds.

The con­fer­ence fea­tured a mix of in­vited talks, panel dis­cus­sions and case stud­ies all per­tin­ent to the field of en­dow­ment man­age­ment. There was ample op­por­tun­ity for group in­put, ques­tions and in­ter­ac­tion. In ad­di­tion spe­cial so­cial events took place such as a musical per­form­ance, wine tast­ing, and a gala din­ner. The pro­gram also fea­tured a tour of the en­dow­ment center, re­search fa­cil­it­ies and ar­chi­tec­tural aspects of the Park Hotel Vitznau, nearby.
