What is the event’s history?
Mary Ruggiero: “Proactive Investors has been running successful investor events, conferences and forums in London, Manchester, Dublin, Toronto, Melbourne, and Sydney for nearly ten years. Three months ago, we opened our New York office and held our first event in the city. That event proved popular and was standing room only during the presentations. The attendees comprised genuine institutional and retail investors with an interest in learning about investment opportunities. They met with CEOs from a wide range of companies. Since then we host one event every month.”
How many attendees do you expect at this event?
Mary Ruggiero: “We have over 120 registered investors and we expect more as the event gets closer. At any one point, we expect there to be between 70 and 80 investors in the room, including many from the top 20 investment banks, as well as some of the largest fund managers and high net worth individuals.”
Who should attend and why?
Mary Ruggiero: “This event is intended for genuine institutional and retail investors who are considering putting their money to work in a dynamic range of sectors. This is your chance to meet the CEOs of companies you are invested in or may be considering investing in, network with like-minded investors, and perhaps be part of a spectacular growth story.”
