BOSTON, MAY 10, 2023Future Proof, the world’s largest wealth festival, today revealed an exciting lineup of speakers and musical acts for the 2023 edition of their innovative outdoor extravaganza.

The iconic hip-hop duo, Redman and Method Man, will take center stage as the headlining musical act.

“Last year, we set out to create something truly unique—and we succeeded,” said Matt Middleton, CEO of Advisor Circle. “By prioritizing a sense of community, the event experience, and challenging the status quo, we assembled some of the most influential figures in our space in a way that has never been done before. Our 2023 lineup dials things up considerably with out-of-the-box thinkers who are defining the future of investing and advice. We are going to blow last year out of the water.”

With new innovations like AI chatbots and next generation custodians remaking the world, it has never been more important to stay engaged and learn how our peers are turning change into opportunity.”
