We are hap­py to report that the inau­gu­ral Swan CIO Sum­mit was a resound­ing suc­cess. Host­ed at the ele­gant Con­dado Van­der­bilt Hotel in San Juan, Puer­to Rico, the sum­mit brought togeth­er over 30 firms and 60 invest­ment pro­fes­sion­als from diverse back­grounds for two days of thought-pro­vok­ing dis­cus­sion and inter­ac­tion

Con­ceived as an intel­lec­tu­al event, the agen­da includ­ed:

One facet of Swan Glob­al Investment’s over­all strat­e­gy is to be an intel­lec­tu­al lead­er in devel­op­ing next-gen­er­a­tion invest­ment solu­tions. The Swan CIO Sum­mit was designed to show­case thought lead­er­ship from both Swan and the wider indus­try. Many par­tic­i­pants at the sum­mit expressed an appre­ci­a­tion that the agen­da was not a crude “pro­duct pitch”, but rather a col­lab­o­ra­tive, thought-pro­vok­ing two days.

While the con­fer­ence in Puer­to Rico was the inau­gu­ral Sum­mit, it will not be the last. It is our inten­tion to have one based on the main­land next year. In addi­tion, we had sev­er­al of our ses­sions pro­fes­sion­al­ly record­ed, and videos of the event are cur­rent­ly in post-pro­duc­tion. Until then, please vis­it the Resources sec­tion of our web­site and our blog for a rich pool of con­tent ground­ed in our desire to address invest­ment chal­lenges.

Swan would like to thank Black­Rock, MSCI, S&P Dow Jones, State Street Glob­al Advi­sors, North­ern Lights Dis­trib­u­tors  and Wal­lach­Beth , as well as all speak­ers and atten­dees, for their par­tic­i­pa­tion in mak­ing the Swan CIO Sum­mit a resound­ing suc­cess.

Impor­tant Notes and Dis­clo­sures:

Swan Glob­al Invest­ments, LLC is a SEC reg­is­tered Invest­ment Advi­sor that spe­cial­izes in man­ag­ing mon­ey using the pro­pri­etary Defined Risk Strat­e­gy (“DRS”). SEC reg­is­tra­tion does not denote any spe­cial train­ing or qual­i­fi­ca­tion con­ferred by the SEC. Swan offers and man­ages the DRS for investors includ­ing indi­vid­u­als, insti­tu­tions and oth­er invest­ment advi­sor firms. Any his­tor­i­cal num­bers, awards and recog­ni­tions pre­sent­ed are based on the per­for­mance of a (GIPS®) com­pos­ite, Swan’s DRS Select Com­pos­ite, which includes non-qual­i­fied dis­cre­tionary accounts invest­ed in since incep­tion, July 1997, and are net of fees and expens­es. Swan claims com­pli­ance with the Glob­al Invest­ment Per­for­mance Stan­dards (GIPS®). All data used here­in; includ­ing the sta­tis­ti­cal infor­ma­tion, ver­i­fi­ca­tion and per­for­mance reports are avail­able upon request. The S&P 500 Index is a mar­ket cap weight­ed index of 500 wide­ly held stocks often used as a proxy for the over­all U.S. equi­ty mar­ket. Index­es are unman­aged and have no fees or expens­es. An invest­ment can­not be made direct­ly in an index. Swan’s invest­ments may con­sist of secu­ri­ties which vary sig­nif­i­cant­ly from those in the bench­mark index­es list­ed above and per­for­mance cal­cu­la­tion meth­ods may not be entire­ly com­pa­ra­ble. Accord­ing­ly, com­par­ing results shown to those of such index­es may be of lim­it­ed use. The adviser’s depen­dence on its DRS process and judg­ments about the attrac­tive­ness, val­ue and poten­tial appre­ci­a­tion of par­tic­u­lar ETFs and options in which the advis­er invests or writes may prove to be incor­rect and may not pro­duce the desired results. There is no guar­an­tee any invest­ment or the DRS will meet its objec­tives. All invest­ments involve the risk of poten­tial invest­ment loss­es as well as the poten­tial for invest­ment gains. Pri­or per­for­mance is not a guar­an­tee of future results and there can be no assur­ance, and investors should not assume, that future per­for­mance will be com­pa­ra­ble to past per­for­mance. All invest­ment strate­gies have the poten­tial for prof­it or loss.
