2016 Morningstar Investment Conference: Day 3 Vlog

On the final day of the 2016 Morningstar Investment Conference, we wrapped up our vlog coverage with several discussions about things to implement as attendees return to their office.

We first attempted to capture sound bites on some of the best ideas heard at the conference, but this ended up unfolding in an unexpected way.

Next we connected with Blane Warrene and Marie Swift who have supported Morningstar’s social hub since it’s debut at the Morningstar Investment Conference five years ago.

We finished with varying perspectives from more key Morningstar employees, with one of them including, if you can believe it, a karaoke song about account aggregation.

I hope you enjoy the experience of day three of the 2016 Morningstar Investment Conference from our perspective.
