Denver, CO — February 23, 2021 — Like 2020, 2021 continues to shepherd a big transformation of the work environment with a rapid evolution of virtual environments. This transformation brings remote learning to center stage, as financial professionals continue to hone their skills and expand their expertise from their home offices.
As many things in life have shifted to online experiences, expectations have been elevated. The online work environment has altered attention spans and created a thirst for programming that drive results. The Investments & Wealth Institute’s upcoming ACE Academy is designed to do just that. Styled after the executive education “master class” programs familiar to Institute membership, ACE Academy creates professional development opportunities with a blend of Ivy League curriculum, practical solutions, and entertainment.
On April 26 – 27, 2021, ACE Academy will bring together highly accomplished and highly sought-after all-stars such as Nobel Laureates Robert Merton, PhD from MIT and Sir Angus Deaton from Princeton University.

ACE Academy attendees will leave the two-day virtual conference with actionable intelligence to move their careers and businesses forward, amid a pandemic.
