IMCA Events

Our members keep up to date with the latest investment thinking by attending the Seminar SeriesIMCA Annual Conference and Expert Round Table sessions.

These events provide a unique opportunity for members to consider and debate current investment issues with many well known local and overseas investment experts. IMCA seminars are teleconferenced to Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. The annual conference is held in Melbourne and Sydney.


The IMCA australia annual conference brings together a mix of international and home-grown experts to share their insights, experiences, and provide practical advice. Both events include a networking lunch and post conference drinks to allow you to catch up with friends and industry colleagues. 



Geopolitical issues are nothing new but CIOs should certainly be concerned that the next shock could trigger significant market volatility. Whilst much has been written about Brexit and Trump, 2017 brings elections in a number of European countries including France and Germany. US and Chinese relations will be watched closely and could be further complicated by a Chinese leadership re-shuffle later this year. Will protectionist or nationalist policies come to fruition? Have investment horizons shifted? How will such developments shape investment markets and what should long-term investors be doing? These topics and their implications will be explored at the IMCA australia 2017 Annual Conference.
