Best personal investing conference almost here
The AIA 2022 Annual National Conference is almost here. With 40 presentations over four days, there is something for every kind of investor, from beginners to experienced.
The conference, titled Riding the Wave of the Megatrends, will be held at the newly refurbished JW Marriot Surfers Paradise Resort & Spa on the beautiful Gold Coast from March 27-30, 2022.
“It is an excellent time to be on the Gold Coast. The hottest summer days have pretty much gone, and we are in this lovely warm and sunny period. The JW Marriott luxury resort has recently been refurbished and we have got special discounts on room prices. So, partners or family might like to come along and enjoy the fabulous swimming pool or the very short walk to the beach,” says Elizabeth Moran, Director of the Australian Investors Association (AIA), and co-founder and Editorial Director, Fixed Income News Australia (FINA).
Featuring leading economists, investing experts and thought leaders across a range of sectors and asset classes, the AIA annual national conference is recognised as the best personal investing conference in Australia, says Moran.
“We recognise it’s been a difficult time for a lot of people with COVID-19 and the recent flooding, but we are going to do our best to hold a wonderful personal investing event. Those that will attend will benefit enormously from listening to experts, networking with sector specialists and other investors, asking questions, having a coffee, lunch, or dinner with these investing professionals. I couldn’t emphasise enough the value of being at an in-person event, even though it may seem very difficult or even scary to think about coming to the event this year,” says Moran.
Keynote speakers for the conference include futurist Shara Evans, renowned economist Saul Eslake, global economics expert Jonathan Pain and venture capitalist and entrepreneur Mark Carnegie. These speakers will share unique market insights and exclusive investment ideas and opportunities for the coming years and the next decade.
Moran is looking forward to the unmissable keynote presentations, XTalks – bite sized 10-minute round table style sessions, and face-to-face networking. “Most market commentary is focused on the current affairs and news and not many people are looking too far into the future. So it’d be really valuable to get some long-term market and investing insights,” says Moran.
“The stock tips at our events have been excellent in the past. We have a couple of stock tipping sessions at the conference – hearing tips and insights from Julia Lee, Rudi Filapek-Vandyck and Angie Ellis will be interesting, particularly considering we have seen correction in stocks.”
Another must-attend session, says Moran, is ‘China and the New World Order’ by Jonathan Pain. Given the uncertainty, volatility, and the geopolitical situation in the context of Russia and China, it’d be interesting to hear Pain’s thoughts on global investment outlook and where the world is headed, according to Moran. Some of the other topics, Moran is keen to discuss and hear about at the conference are: inflation, interest rates, population pressures, mega trends including decarbonisation and green hydrogen, and how they will impact investing across different asset classes.
