The association began with 20 corporate pensions and 20 asset managers from the US and Canada. Over the last three decades, 20-20 has evolved into a truly global organization with members representing a wide variety of financial institutions from all corners of the globe.

“We are delighted with our long-standing membership in the 20-20 Investment Association. We have found its annual meetings to be insightful, delivering an impressive list of speakers covering the current geopolitical economic environment. The annual trips to emerging market countries provide great access to senior management of key sectors and key decision making in an open and engaging format. We look forward to continuing and expanding our partnership with the 20-20 Investment Association and its members.”

“In over 20 years of participation for Prudential and SeaBridge, 20-20 has substantially improved my understanding of the complexities of emerging market investing. This is the professional payoff, which is in addition to the warm personal relationships developed with 20-20's top professionals from around the world.”

"Despite our shrinking globe, the act of prospecting for new market intelligence and strong multinational bonds remains a daunting task for institutional investors and asset managers. The 20-20 Association combines outreach, research and relationships into a unique format that fills the brain and soul simultaneously. Their exploratory field trips into frontier and emerging markets come with demanding itineraries, robust agendas of thought leadership, active participation, and ultimately a few meaningful conversations and connections that stick for a lifetime. In today’s environment, it’s rare to find such true and unvarnished access to global leadership, frontier markets and compelling ideas."

CEO, Washington State Investment Board

"DPI is a proud member of 20-20 Association. We have gained great value in connecting with like-minded investors and thought leaders across emerging and frontier markets in various forums. The trips to various continents have been unique opportunities to be on the ground acquiring first hand knowledge in these markets."
