Two major conferences for financial advisors have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
Morningstar said Wednesday that it decided to postpone its yearly investment conference, which had been set for June 3–5 in Chicago.
The gathering will now take place at some point in the fall “in order to ensure the health and safety of our delegates, volunteers, and staff during the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.”
Chicago-based Morningstar says it will announce the event’s new date “in the coming weeks.”
Last year’s event included keynote speakers such as Pimco’s Manny Roman, AQR’s Cliff Asness, Franklin Templeton’s Sonal Desai, and Morningstar CEO Kunal Kapoor.
