Fund Strategy agrees sponsorship deal with SWAY

Fund Strategy and Money Marketing, a sister title in the Centaur group, will be media sponsors for SWAY’s Senate Programme events in the New Year.

The first event will be the Senate Manager of Manager in Tenerife on January 19-21. The conference will bring together around 40 discretionary buyers of retail funds, 20 leading advisory firms, 12 leading manager of managers providers and a range of asset management companies.

It will take place at the highly prestigious Gran Hotel, set in luxurious surroundings with a golden beach, waterfalls and lakes and expected average temperatures around 70 degrees.

The conference will cover all the cutting edge issues in the investment industry, with keynote speakers, breakout dialogue sessions and one-to-one meetings.

As well as networking in an informal environment, delegates will get the chance to enter the Senate golf and big game fishing tournaments and take island safaris.

Other conferences planned for the New Year include conferences in June on alternative investments in Cannes and discretionary long-only funds in Monte Carlo, the Senate IFA Conference in Monte Carlo in September, and two conferences on investment trusts and global third party investments with dates and venues yet to be arranged.

SWAY managing director Tabitha Wood says: “The Senate Programme is firmly established as the leading up-market events brand in asset management. It is being extended to new markets and Centaur is keen to partner us in our development. Conferences are increasingly being seen as a major part of comms spend and we are benefiting from this.”

Centaur financial division publisher Patrick Ponsford says: We look forward to adding our media clout to this already successful stream of events and offering sponsors added value through our market-leading titles.”
