The TrackInsight European Summit is an independent, private event organised by FinTech TrackInsight to foster dialogue with clients, partners & friends and to sketch the future of investing in the digital age.
TES2019 is a unique gathering, which aims to capture trends, challenges, innovative ideas and disruptive thinking, while bringing together the movers & shakers of the industry to address the challenges all investment firms are facing in this new era.
But as this sector has grown almost exponentially, the questions and critiques have started to multiply. How accurate (and useful) are the index screening methodologies? What’s the impact of the selected businesses in real world challenges? Is the whole movement one giant example of virtue signalling by a liberal financial elite?
This a private event for senior investment professionals, with 250 delegates personally selected and invited for their strategic position within leading pan-European investment firms as main decision makers in the investment process supporting institutional, corporate and private clients globally.
Organised behind closed doors with a handful of founding partners, TES2019 brings together those who think and build the future, those who acknowledge that solutions of the past need a refit at the very least.
Structured around 10 key-note speeches by C-level executive industry leaders, recognised experts in their fields, the conference aims to provide the right balance of stand-up presentations, networking and less formal moments to ensure fruitful dialogue, open discussion and exchange.
Thematic workshops will be held to highlight the several challenges investors will face in the digital age.
At the event, Riccardo Rebonato, Professor of Finance, EDHEC-Risk Institute, EDHEC Business School will give a keynote speech on the theme of Factor Investing Fixed Income.
His session entitled: "Is Fixed Income the New El Dorado for Factor Investing?" will examine the following issues:
- Why is fixed income fertile hunting ground for factor investing?
- Can we believe in fixed-income factors?
- How to avoid the three horsemen of the Apocalypse (over-fitting, data mining, and factor fishing)?
Programme available on November 4.
