Why Should I Attend?


Exclusive access to the best ideas from leading Fund Managers

Sohn Hearts & Minds is known for delivering a unique event experience. Each year the program is carefully curated to bring you the best minds in the global investment community.

Content you can’t get anywhere else

Up to fifteen Fund Managers present information, insights and rationale that is usually only shared with their clients, if at all. Many of our speakers rarely appear in public and most never talk to a single-stock idea.

Keynote speakers

Global investment thought leaders appear exclusively at Sohn Hearts & Minds and present bespoke presentations for the conference.

Stocks presented consistently outperform

Each year the majority of stocks presented at the conference outperform expectations.  These high conviction investment recommendations are included in our unique listed investment company, HM1 (learn more about HM1 here).

You’re doing good just by attending

Supporting medical research is an investment

Approximately 90% of your ticket price is tax deductible. A DGR Status 1 tax invoice will be provided to you at the time of purchase.
