L’AGEFI Day: Indexing, ETF & Smart Beta Summit is a unique opportunity to gain deep insight in the latest techniques and trends that are reshaping the investment management industry.
The conference is dedicated to institutional investors, multi-managers, private bankers and family officers and will focus on the key aspects of modern investment approaches including indexing, single and multi-factor portfolios and smart beta solutions.
