At a Glance
Schedule & Topics
Get an insight to future outlook, market trends and opportunities for asset management in the industry today. Specifically, a member of senior management from J.P. Morgan will discuss the major challenges faced by one of the world’s leading asset managers, and the broad strategies being pursued in response to today’s unprecedented environment. This keynote will orientate delegates to the directed discussions happening in the panels throughout the conference.
Over the past year, actively managed mutual funds recorded a net outflow of $316 billion, while index funds recorded a net inflow $409 billion. However, evidence has been growing that the market for index funds is quickly becoming saturated, to the extent that fears about liquidity and the efficient pricing of new investments have surfaced. The growth in demand for index funds has thus created new opportunities for alpha, and could potentially reverse the high performance of indexing strategies. Is there a bubble for index funds?
Delegates may interact with speakers and panel members over lunch, as well as connect with HR representatives from partner firms and organisations.
What possibilities and implications do the rise of algorithmic banking hold? What are wealth managers turning to in today’s low-yield climate? In this Panel, we hear from senior representatives of some of the world’s foremost financial institutions about the most exciting developments in private banking and the different ways in which these trends are being capitalized upon.
Outstanding candidates in the breakout workshops will be invited to network with senior professionals and analysts from J.P. Morgan over a cocktail dinner function.
See you next year!
