DALLAS, Nov. 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Three Part Advisors, LLC today announced details for The Southwest IDEAS Investor Conference to be held on November 14 & 15, 2012 at The Sheraton Dallas near the Galleria, Dallas, Texas. The mission of the IDEAS Investor Conferences is to provide independent venues for quality public companies to present their investment merits to an influential audience of investment professionals and analysts from across the country. Unlike traditional bank-sponsored events, IDEAS Investor Conferences are sponsored directly by and for the benefit of the members of the regional investment communities.
IDEAS Conferences, which are held in Boston, Chicago and Dallas/Fort Worth, are produced by the strategic investor relations and consulting firm, Three Part Advisors, LLC, and sponsored by regional investment communities. The conference format provides each participating company multiple opportunities to meet with key professional investors and explain investment merits to attendees, both in a traditional group presentation, and in private meetings. Each presenting company will also have the opportunity to webcast its group presentation.
"First and foremost, the structure of our conferences is designed to generate good IDEAS that over time can outperform the market. Because our conferences are independent venues, and not influenced by investment banking or trading commissions, we have greater freedom to invite quality companies that might otherwise fly under the radar screen of similar bank-sponsored venues," said David M. Mossberg, Founder of Three Part Advisors. "We also enjoy the support of the regional investment community and seek their input to determine the list of presenting companies. As a result of this structure, our conferences have established a successful track record of generating good IDEAS."
Institutional Investment Firm Sponsors: Conference sponsors collectively have more than $100 Billion in assets under management and include: Barrow Hanley Mewhinney & Strauss, Keeley Asset Management, Hodges Capital Management, Luther King Capital Management, Allianz Global Investors: NFJ Investment Group, RENN Capital, Great Lakes Advisors, Ironwood Investment Management and Perritt Capital Management.
Other Sponsors: CFA Society of Dallas/ Fort Worth, Nasdaq, ConvergEx Group: Prime Services, Hein and Associates LLP, and Three Part Advisors, LLC.
