Tiburon's CEO Summits provide a unique opportunity for a select cross-industry group of senior executives to discuss a broad swath of issues regarding the future of the banking, brokerage, investments, insurance, advice, & wealth management businesses. Tiburon's CEO Summits likely provide one of the only true forums where financial services industry CEOs from across traditional industry silos gather to discuss business opportunities. The list of business relationships resulting from prior Tiburon CEO Summits is impressive.

Tiburon CEO Summits last two-to-three days and focus on in-depth discussions of Tiburon research and leading-edge business models through guest presentations, panel discussions, and break-out sessions. Guest speakers often address industry mergers & acquisitions, venture capital & private equity trends, corporate governance, & public policy issues. Panel discussions are structured to solicit opinions from various industry players, including consumers, financial advisors, gatekeepers, stock analysts, venture capitalists, investment bankers, private equity investors, journalists, & others. Break-out sessions allow for more in-depth discussions on timely topics as chosen by attendees.

Tiburon executive-level clients are invited to participate in a forum of open sharing and discussion of industry trends. The meetings have become a hot ticket for industry executives. There is no cost to attend beyond one's travel expenses. Attendance is by invitation only; all attendees are ongoing Tiburon clients. Repetitive cancelations or unwillingness to participate in the feedback process leads to invitees not being invited back.

Tiburon CEO Summits Award Recipients

Tiburon's CEO Summits have come to support three central themes and Tiburon created its Tiburon CEO Summit Awards to recognize industry executives who exemplify these attributes. Those themes are:

  • Focusing on Consumer (and Other Client) Needs: Tiburon has long been known for promoting the importance of staying close to (and listening to) clients and focusing on clients' needs, arguing that the financial services industry conducts too little consumer research, opting to design products before listening to consumers. To foster such a focus at the Tiburon CEO Summits, Tiburon starts every Tiburon CEO Summit with a review of consumer wealth & sentiments and many Tiburon CEO Summits have included three related panel discussions representing three levels of clients; these include the Ask the Consumers, Ask the Advisors, & Ask the Gatekeepers panels, all of which allow direct open dialog with industry clients
  • Challenging Conventional Industry Wisdom (Innovation): Tiburon has long perceived certain segments of the financial services industry to be caught up in group think and the firm has become known for challenging conventional industry wisdom. Tiburon's Managing Partner Chip Roame does this through research and sharing factual data that often calls into question commonly perceived industry truths. Tiburon welcomes and encourages this critical thinking as part of its Tiburon CEO Summits. Furthermore, Tiburon is most often engaged in moving beyond factual data to help its clients develop innovative business strategies. In this light, Tiburon appreciates the innovators in the industry and seeks to recognize them, whether they are employees within large financial services firms or entrepreneurs leading smaller firms
  • Taking Responsibility: Tiburon appreciates industry executives who make time to address consumers' savings needs and industry development beyond their own businesses and sees such responsibility and participation as both integral to consumers' success and the industry's success. Tiburon applies this thinking at its own Tiburon CEO Summits by requiring participation; all attendees are asked to participate in presenting and/or serving as panelists in an attempt to create open communications and wide-ranging debate. All attendees are also asked to complete feedback forms and nominate future award recipients & guest speakers

Tiburon initiated its Tiburon CEO Summit Awards in 2009 to further support the above mentioned themes. Past & upcoming award winners have included:

 

  • Rob Arnott (CEO, Research Affiliates)
  • Walt Bettinger (CEO, The Charles Schwab Corporation)
  • John Bogle (Founder, The Vanguard Group)

Tiburon CEO Summits Attendee Policy

Tiburon maintains a list of over 1,900 executive-level clients at over 400 companies who have engaged the firm, many of whom have actively participated in prior Tiburon CEO Summits. Attendance at each Tiburon CEO Summit is reserved for Tiburon's clients. If you are an executive-level Tiburon client and would like to participate in a future Tiburon CEO Summit, please contact Tiburon's Managing Partner Chip Roame. If you are not yet a client and interested, please contact Sarah Sage.

CEO Summit XX

Attendees at Tiburon CEO Summit XX in New York, NY listen intently to a guest speaker

Tiburon CEO Summits, more specifically, have two specific attendee policies:

  • Seniority: Tiburon is making a conscious effort to limit attendance to C level executives, executive vice presidents, partners, & other business heads. Other managing directors, senior vice presidents, functional heads (and all others) are not invited in order to keep the discussion focused on CEO-level issues
  • Clients: Tiburon defines its corporate clients as all firms that sponsor the Tiburon CEO Summits, subscribe to the Tiburon Research Access Program, and/or purchase at least a single day of consulting. Tiburon does not extend invitations to board members including non-executive chairmen, but they are welcome to qualify in their full-time roles

Once invitations are extended, delegation is not allowed. Tiburon realizes that if substitutes are allowed, the firm may quickly end up hosting a vice presidents Summit, instead of a CEOs Summit. Due to the frequency and other commitments, many Tiburon clients attend Tiburon's CEO Summits only periodically, but are still granted seats as long as they remain active Tiburon clients.
