Marketing Alternative Investments

FCS Chicago opens the new year with a breakfast event hosted at Dotdash Meredith that will feature a panel discussion on “Bridging The Gap: Marketing’s Role In Bringing Alternative Investments To All Investors.”

On Thursday, January 18, Scott Wentworth, CEO & Founder of Wentworth Financial Communications, will moderate the conversation with a group of experienced financial marketers responsible for leading the marketing of alternative and private markets investments at their brands. Confirmed panelists include:

  • Kate Chmielewski, Managing Director of Marketing, Cresset Partners
  • Jessica Leggett, Vice President of Marketing, Harrison Street Partners
  • Katie Flynn, VP, U.S. Wealth Client Marketing Campaigns Manager, Nuveen

As investors of all types look to dial up their exposure to non-traditional asset classes, the asset management industry is focused on bringing alternative investment strategies to individual investors and their advisors while also expanding their alternatives and private markets capabilities for institutions. Marketing teams are at the front lines of this high stakes battle for market share and portfolio allocations.

Join us to hear our panel discuss the state of alternative investment and private markets marketing and share lessons on how they use communications and content strategy to expand the reach of their stories.

Sign up to be a Content Champion Sponsor and receive 5 tickets plus branding before and at the event.

In gratitude to our panelists, the FCS will donate $1,000 to Chicago Scholars, which provides students with the resources, training, and opportunities to navigate the college application process, graduate, and transition into a professional career.

Our thanks to Wentworth Financial Communications, our programming partner, and Dotdash Meredith, our host sponsor, for making this event possible.
