This event is specifically designed for investment stewards of non-profit endowments and foundations and those that advise them.  We will explore seven global fiduciary precepts; define who is an Investment Fiduciary and their respective roles and responsibilities, and identify best practices of investment stewards and their corresponding legal substantiation. This event also focuses on the legal requirements and corresponding best practices of investment fiduciaries as outlined in the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, Uniform Prudent Investor Act (UPIA) and the Uniform Prudent Management of Institutional Funds Act (UPMIFA).
