In Uncategorized by Paulyn

APFC is honored to be hosting the 11th Annual Meeting of the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds (IFSWF) in Juneau, Alaska on September 10-13, 2019.   APFC is a founding member of IFSWF and is proud of this global forum’s work to enhance collaboration, promote a deeper understanding of sovereign wealth funds, and elevate standards for best practices and governance.

The theme of the IFSWF Annual Meeting is Global Currents: Technology. Partnerships. The Arctic. The meeting is for IFSWF members and their invited guests from the global financial services industry – it does not provide an open registration component. The meeting is structured to provide member only sessions on the first two days, and then on the third day it is opened to invited guests from the financial services sector and entities that have established professional relationships with the IFSWF membership.  The venue is open only to registered guests.

To the extent that it is possible, APFC wants to share in this event with Alaskans throughout the State – as such we are working together with 360 North/KTOO to broadcast and live stream the sessions that will be offered to the larger audience on the third day of the meeting as follows:
