A Preview of Coming Attractions

Jeremy Grantham, Will Danoff, and Michael Hasenstab are among the participants at this year's Morningstar Investment Conference.

The 2012 Morningstar Investment Conference kicks off here in Chicago on Wednesday, June 20. With the event just three short weeks away, now's a good time to preview coming attractions. Below I've focused on a group of sessions and keynoters that seem like safe bets for this year's highlight reel, but the lineup is strong overall. I'm biased--I was on the team that helped put this year's program together--but the participants we've invited and the topics they'll address are wide ranging, timely, and relevant for investors of all stripes.

The 2012 conference's speakers and panelists span asset classes, strategies, investment vehicles, and geographic boundaries, fueling a diverse set of panel topics. Among them: the state of the euro, investing across the capital structure, and the prospects for equities, bonds, and cash in light of the past few years' tumult, current valuations, anemic bond yields, and 10 years of real-return water-treading for equity investors.
