2024 Investment Conference

Recognized as the Midwest’s premier event for cutting-edge investment thinking, the SecureFutures Investment Conference is modeled after Wall Street Week and the Ira Sohn Investment Research Conference in New York. The afternoon includes presentations from an impressive line-up of leading investment managers who volunteer their time to support the cause. All speakers present their most compelling investment ideas and perspectives.

All proceeds benefit financial literacy education for youth through SecureFutures (formerly Make A Difference – Wisconsin). To learn how you can get involved as a sponsor at this year’s event, contact Brenda Campbell at (414) 310-5920 or brenda@securefutures.org.
