Inaugural APEX 2014 Conference Seeks Speakers with Fresh Ideas for the Future of Financial Services

CHICAGO, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- HighTower, an industry leading financial services firm, announces Apex 2014, the firm's first-ever industry-wide conference, being held at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago, May 20-23, 2014.

Apex will promote transformation, innovation and provocation in financial services. The conference's theme "Foothold to the Future" reflects the event's emphasis on advancing the industry, generating new thinking and addressing the trends and challenges that will shape the sector for years to come.

"Apex 2014 is an outgrowth of our semi-annual partnership meetings, which have served as an incubator for our best ideas and a catalyst for bringing our vision of a new kind of financial firm to life," HighTower CEO Elliot Weissbluth said. "We are expanding our conference to include a diverse group of leaders to invigorate and modernize a field that has become too comfortable with the status quo."

HighTower is reserving four, 15-minute spots for its Apex Insights sessions to feature publicly nominated speakers with progressive viewpoints on a variety of financial services topics, including services, investments, technology, partnerships, marketing, investor research, academic theories and more. Interested speakers and other nominators for Apex Insights can view the brief requirements and submit credentials for consideration at HighTowerApex.com. The deadline for submission is March 21, 2014 with final selections being announced on the conference website and Twitter on April 7, 2014.

"We want speakers who are informed about the industry, but are not tied to an established way of doing things," Weissbluth said. "We're giving them the opportunity to present their ideas to an audience that can enact and champion their innovation-with far-reaching, real-world impact."

Apex 2014 will feature nationally renowned speakers, including a conversation with Michael Lewis, author of the best-sellers Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game, Liar's Pokers and The New New Thing.

Apex platinum sponsors include Vanguard and Nuveen Investments. For more information, and to view the current agenda, visit HighTowerApex.com and follow us at Twitter @APEX2014.
