Event Summary:

The FCS New York is proud to partner with CoinDesk as our exclusive programming sponsor on the creation of a very special luncheon panel discussion. On August 16th, we meet at the Harvard Club to learn about "Crypto: The Most Exciting Alternative Asset."

In the beginning of the year, the FCS held a national survey, with one of the questions asking about topics of interest for our events.  "Cryptocurrencies" was a top 3 response.

Well, there's more to Crypto than bitcoin and other currencies... it's a whole new asset category.

CoinDesk's Director of Research Nolan Bauerle will lead the discussion with four clientside execs whose companies are deeply engaged in crypto.

Join us for a dynamic discussion that will be as instructive and inspirational as it is provocative.

Event Summary:

The FCS New York is proud to partner with SiriusDecisions as our exclusive programming sponsor on the staging of our August breakfast on "Financial Marketing Challenges & Priorities for 2019."

The event will open with a presentation of the brand-new results of SiriusDecisions’ annual CMO survey.

Then we'll turn to our panel of senior marketers for their insights on the approach they'll be taking following Labor Day as they undertake planning for 2019.  What are their priorities?  What are the challenges they'll face?  How can existing and new resource partners help them acheive success?

We'll talk about their growth strategies as well as those areas that need improvement.  Topics might range from the media mix to talent and headcount.  We'll hone in on challenges around client engagement... from the difficulty in gathering and interpreting accurate data to the development and distribution of relevant brand content.

Ultimately, we'll ask about how they believe their marketing investments can be optimized.

Join us for a provocative and informative breakfast presentation and discussion.

Event Summary:

FCS Boston, in partnership with Eaton Vance, will stage a breakfast panel discussion around "The Rise of Responsible Investing."

ESG assets have continued to rise over the past few years, as asset managers and investors alike have sought higher returns by seeking socially responsible opportunities in the marketplace.  The concept of impact investing is driving portfolio managers to find ways to align their offerings with investors’ core social values while still reaping financial rewards.

Our panelists will discuss how their companies are approaching this trend, how it's being fueled by more socially engaged investors, and whether the ideology will prove sustainable and scalable.

Join us for a breakfast event that will be of great interest to the marketers who look to support and communicate this dynamic investment sector.

The breakfast will be hosted by Eaton Vance in their offices at 2 International Place, Boston, in the Seminar Rooms on the 3rd Floor.
