Schwab Institutional, a division of Charles Schwab & Co., announced today it would still hold IMPACT 2001, a conference for independent investment advisers.
IMPACT 2001, which was originally planned for five days, will now be held over three days, Oct. 9-11, 2001, at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center in Seattle.
The conference agenda is being modified to include presenters who will address recent events, and comment on how developments will affect the investment industry. Additional information, as well as continuing updates, is available at www.impact.schwab.com.
“After much consideration, we feel the majority of our clients and their companies want to move ahead and get back to business,” Deborah McWhinney, president of Schwab’s Services for Investment Managers, said in a statement released by the firm. “We feel this is an important time for advisers, industry leaders and other experts to meet and talk about what lies before us, and how we can together best serve investors during these times of uncertainty.”
Those registered for the conference will receive a revised agenda and reduced fee structure, according to the firm.
