The European forum, at which attendance and two nights accommodation is free for delegates, is to be held at the Princess Sofia Intercontinental in Barcelona where on Day One delegates will be able to hear a series of presentations on the markets and current asset allocation policies.
Day Two will focus on product innovation and trends in fund structures and portfolio strategies.
Paul Forsyth of fund consultants Forsyth Partners will be chairing the conference.
Barings, Gartmore, Hendersons, Newton, Scottish Value Management and Threadneedle are among those fielding fund managers who will talk delegates through their current investment strategies on global technology, Europe, the US, Japan and emerging markets.
Issues discussed will be the fast changing pace of global technology investment, opportunities in Europe and value versus growth stocks.
Fund managers will also be laying out the investment rationale for investing in Japan and emerging markets.
Concerns about valuation levels of growth stocks will also be discussed and whether or not this will see a shift away from highly valued growth stocks towards economic cyclicals.
On Day Two topics will also include the latest hedge fund strategies, fund structures and European investment regulations. In particular, the growing use of hedge fund strategies will be discussed including an explanation as to how they can be incorporated in mainstream portfolios.
On both days delegates will also get a chance to attend a series of workshops on a range of investment topics.
The two-day conference is aimed at professionals conducting both retail and institutional investment business who need to hear first hand what the managers that run the funds have to say.
Places at the forum, including accommodation, are free to delegates, although places are strictly limited.
