Join us at the 35th annual Morningstar Investment Conference for cutting-edge research, valuable insights, and analysis that empowers the investors of today and gives shape to the investing possibilities of tomorrow.
April 25–27, 2023
McCormick Place Lakeside Center, Chicago
The context is change.
Accelerating technologies. Emerging asset classes. New investing paradigms. Collectively, they challenge assumptions about who an investor can, should, or will be. They inform new paths to long-terms success. They inspire us to reconsider delineations of risk, time horizon, and values.
When the playbook needs to expand, where do you look?
The Morningstar Investment Conference is your in-person deep-dive into the strategies, mindset shifts, methods, and tools you need to build long-term financial success in 2023 and beyond. Join investment outliers, experts, and trailblazers for 3 days of frank dialogue, analysis, and perspective. Expand your understanding across an ever-evolving investor lifecycle. Get a firm footing on the current investment landscape—and prepare for where we’re headed next.
Why attend the Morningstar Investment Conference?
The path to long-term success is often compromised by misunderstood asset classes, unproven methods, and exaggerated promises of innovation. At the conference, we together shine a light forward and clarify the way. What matters? What is worth further consideration? What is in the best interest of investors? Our sharp analysis helps you spot patterns and opportunities while maintaining a bird’s-eye view (which is more valuable than ever in volatile times). Join us and meet each moment of an investor’s journey with a sharpened focus, deeper insights, and the data you need to harness long-term success in the face of change.

Your Day-to-Night Morningstar Investment Conference Experience
Keynote sessions are just the beginning.
The Braindate Lounge is a networking/meeting space for topic driven conversations. The goal of the lounge is to activate the knowledge of all MIC peers in a space where you can build real relationships based on common goals. Use the Braindate app to search for topics of interest, post your own, and meet other attendees with the same interests. Friendly Braindate hosts will greet you at the lounge and guide you to your meeting area for inspiring conversation, network expansion, and who knows—maybe even some new friendships.
At the end of Day 2, join us at the Investor Success Celebration: our blowout Grand Ballroom event at Navy Pier. Chicago’s lakefront treasure offers a pedestrian boardwalk, stunning views, rides, games, and more. Enjoy live music, food, and drinks while sharing success stories, swapping tips, and celebrating the goal of empowering investor success.
