The theme of this year's 12th MIT Sloan Investment Conference is "Investing during Complex Macro Markets."  While the public companies have reached some of the highest equity valuations in years, other market components have simultaneously behaved in new ways never seen before by investors: negative interest rates, slowing economic growth, global quantitative easing, low fixed income yields, and record-high sovereign debt.

Since founding modern finance in the 1960's, MIT Sloan continues to advance investment and finance thought leadership to this day.  Our objective of this conference is to represent the school's mission statement, "to develop principled, innovative leaders who improve the world and to generate ideas that advance management practice."
