INVITATION: Aspen Family Wealth Gathering February 11-14, 2019

Saturday, November 03, 2018

Aspen, a storied ski resort and haven for outdoor enthusiasts, is also the seat of enormous cultural and educational institutions. The Aspen Institute at The Aspen Meadows, founded after World War II, has become a wellspring of global learning for world leaders, business executives and NGO’s.

The Aspen Family Wealth Gathering is initiated and organized by a group of US family offices and focuses on topics of particular relevance to NextGen members of wealthy families

The Gathering will begin on Monday evening the 11th of February with attendee arrivals and a Welcome Cocktail at The Aspen Institute. On Tuesday and Wednesday, attendees will hear from leading speakers each morning on topics such as ESG, impact investing, philanthropy, trust and estates issues, alternative investments and co-investments. The event is noncommercial and educational in tone.

In the afternoons, attendees can either participate in open roundtable discussions on a number of more-focused topics such as: investing in art and other passion investments, film production investments, emerging markets and family dynamics.

However, attendees may also choose to ski at this time, benefitting from group pricing on ski lift tickets and rentals.

On Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, there will be group dinners held at renowned Aspen venues: Pine Creek Cookhouse and The Woody Creek Tavern

Attendee departures will occur on Thursday, February 14th. Special hotel rates may be available for guests wishing to arrive early or stay longer.
