On November 11 and 12, 2020, Crestone hosted its 19th Annual, yet first virtual, Investment Conference in the midst of COVID-19 and the world’s largest work from home experiment.
After deciding to call off the firm’s 2020 spring conference, Finding Meaning in Money, Crestone forged ahead for its fall conference and arranged renowned thought leaders and investment managers from around the world to present virtually over two days, providing insights on economic, social and political trends driving financial markets and much more.
This year’s virtual Crestone client Investment Conference featured speakers including Wall Street’s #1 Economist, Ed Hyman of Evercore; Forbes Top Hedge Fund Manager, Chase Coleman of Tiger Global; the largest foreign investor in Russia (2005) and author of Red Notice, Bill Browder of Hermitage Capital; emerging venture capital leader, Judith Li of LAV; and Wall Street’s most influential investors, thinkers, enforcers, policy makers, and market movers, Byron Wien of Blackstone, to name a few.
“We knew we needed to make one of our most important client conferences happen and do something different,” said Eric Kramer, Crestone's CEO and CIO. “That includes leading what we see as a new normal of virtual client interactions...until the fog has lifted,” continued Kramer.
Crestone plans to convert other annual client conferences into this format and continues to innovate new ways to engage clients virtually for the health and safety of employees, clients and our communities.
