On September 11, 2022, we are launching Future Proof, a FinTech and wealth management event like never before, with unparalleled learning experiences and inspiring sessions from across the world of financial services, investing, technology or FinTech, pop culture, and impact. Future Proof features a new take on traditional conferences, exhibitions, and networking.
Book your pass today for Future Proof and save. Registration rates increase on April 1, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
We are excited to bring together a multigenerational professional investor audience with the communities of wealth and asset management, crypto FinTech, pop culture, and impact. We will do our best to keep you informed on all things Future Proof, including speaker and session announcements, hotel room block details, special events, and more.
The beating heart of Future Proof will be a ½-mile outdoor space called “The Boardwalk,” which features unique learning experiences, content, exhibitions, brand activations, and networking opportunities. The Boardwalk will feature dueling outdoor stages, engaging art exhibits, and interactive themed lounges. The 4-day citywide immersive experience takes place within a walkable footprint of downtown Huntington Beach, California.
Our community is purpose-built to connect financial advisors, institutional investors, asset managers, banks, FinTech, crypto companies, financial creators, and more. Our goal is to create an environment that fosters conversation and the cross-pollination of ideas.
Future Proof separates itself from traditional business-to-business financial services events regarding networking and how we connect. Fully understanding that networking is not a one-size-fits-all, we have created a range of evening social events, from large-scale concerts and beach parties to small, more intimate interactions based on shared interests, hobbies, lifestyles. All attendees have several opportunities to connect with their peers on their terms.
Future Proof further separates itself from the traditional wealth management conference in how we construct the agenda. A strict NO-PAY-TO-PLAY policy ensures a current, relevant program and speaks directly to our attendees’ needs. Gone are the tired old sales pitches and people talking their book. In their place is a speaker lineup of fresh new faces and ideas driven by our community.
There are only two ways to become a Future Proof speaker. One is an invite from our editorial team, or you can apply to be a speaker through our simple application process.
We are looking for the best of the best to join us. Apply to be a Future Proof speaker and help shape the future of wealth.
Future Proof features a range of attendance passes, all of which grant you access to all Future Proof-hosted events, including but not limited to content sessions, evening receptions, our interactive lounges, and the food pavilion. Please note some events may require preregistration or may be invite-only. Your Future Proof pass does not automatically qualify you for these events.

Physical and mental health is the cornerstone of any successful long-term wealth plan. But for years, our industry has prioritized work over health, leading to unhealthy lifestyles and employee burnout. The Health Is Wealth Center provides a warm and relaxed setting, allowing attendees to come in and recharge, grab a drink from the juice bar and eat healthy snacks. The space will also be home to daily group yoga and fitness classes as well as meditation sessions.
You can’t expand your perspective and think differently if you aren’t exposed to a broad perspective. That’s why our speaker faculty isn’t limited to traditional finance. The Brewing Lounge will bring out-of-industry experts to present their visions for a new world of wealth. To help fuel the conversations, we’ve created a true coffeehouse feel complete with baristas just waiting to pour you the perfect cup of joe.
