Veru Symposium 2022

The Theodore D. Veru Symposium, which annually brings internationally distinguished leaders in business, economics, and world finance to speak at the University of Hartford, has announced its 2022 agenda. The symposium, viewable both live and virtually, will feature the principals of three of the top finance and asset management firms in the nation.

Students, university faculty and staff members, and the general public are invited to be part of this exclusive symposium, titled The Future of Finance: Digital Assets, Crypto Currencies, Decentralized Finance,” on Thursday, April 7, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the school’s Wilde Auditorium at the Harry Jack Gray Center, and also via Livestream.

The event is sponsored by UHart alumnus Peter Veru (‘85) and Palisade Capital Management. Veru, a graduate of the UHart’s Barney School of Business, founded the symposium in 1999 and named it in commemoration of his father. The Theodore D. Veru Symposium gives the local community a chance to hear analysis of current and future trends in global investing, economic movement, and financial expectations from guest speakers who are among the most accomplished in their fields.

This year’s presenters are Dan Veru, chief investment officer of Palisade Capital Management; Jason Trennert, chairman and CEO of Strategas; and Tom Jessup, president of Fidelity Digital Assets. All three are highly accomplished and well respected, and have contributed to many top business media outlets, including CNBC, Bloomberg News, and financial magazines and websites.

Those interested to attend in person or online are required to register by April 6.
