The DFW II FORUM
The DFW Institutional Investment FORUM was established in late 2000 as the Dallas Chapter of the Society of Pension Professionals and renamed at the end of 2018. This is the educational FORUM for institutional investment professionals in the Dallas / Fort Worth area. The primary focus is on institutional investment professionals that manage pension plans, both public and private; foundations and endowments, family offices, and consultants. The six regularly scheduled meetings in 2023 provide a FORUM for the exchange of ideas over lunch, along an educational speaker or panel discussion and networking opportunities. Special meetings include our annual meeting at the Dallas Federal Reserve to hear their economist’s latest market outlook. Visitors are welcome, just register for the meeting to ensure you have a seat at the table.
We keep education and networking a priority while also caring for the safety and well-being of participants. We met virtually during COVID, but we are back in-person beginning in March 2022. By attending you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. Please stay safe and take responsibility for yourself and others by getting vaccinated and wearing a mask when required.
