Boston, MA – September 28, 2020 — Nicsa’s keystone industry event, its General Membership Meeting, is going virtual this year and features some of the industry’s most influential innovators. The GMM will take place from October 7-9.


The General Membership Meeting will bring together industry professionals via a virtual platform to hear dynamic and diverse perspectives on the most pressing issues facing the global asset management industry. The event is designed for asset managers, broker dealers, banks, and professional service and consulting firms strategically positioning their firms in an uncertain environment.


Notable speakers include Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase & Co.; Jennifer Johnson of Franklin Resources; Mellody Hobson of Ariel Investments, LLC; Soledad O'Brien, award-winning journalist and entrepreneur; and Tyler Mathisen of CNBC.


In all, thirty-seven speakers from 34 different companies will cover top-of-mind issues such as: returning to the workplace, inclusion and wellness, forward-looking business modeling, product trends and lifecycles, differentiation and competitive advantages, the economic and political landscape, and more. Nicsa’s line-up of impressive speakers, along with an agenda featuring candid and authentic conversations is strategically planned to help the global asset management industry reimagine the path forward.


“Nicsa is taking a new approach this year and is opening participation to all employees of corporate registrants. While we are disappointed that we will not be seeing our members in person this year, the virtual format lends itself to deeper engagement within member firms, and has offered us an opportunity to host some of the industry’s most influential speakers,” said Jim Fitzpatrick, President and CEO of Nicsa.


Tyler Mathisen, CNBC’s co-anchor of the popular “Power Lunch,” returns to the Nicsa stage to moderate the much anticipated annual Face the Membership session, featuring two of the industry’s most powerful thought leaders: Jennifer Johnson and Mellody Hobson. Both are on Barron’s 2020 list of The 100 Most Influential Women in Finance.


JPMorgan Chase & Co. Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon, a financial industry leader and catalyst for innovation, will headline as a closing speaker in a Fireside Chat with Jim Fitzpatrick, President & CEO of Nicsa.
