EVENT INFORMATION

 

THE INSTITUTIONAL FIXED INCOME EVENT LED BY INDUSTRY INSIGHTS. BRINGING TOGETHER INVESTMENT, ASSET ALLOCATION AND TREASURY PROFESSIONALS FROM AROUND EUROPE TO DISCUSS EXTERNAL MARKET PRESSURES, INDUSTRY EVOLUTION AND MONETARY POLICY.

Asset owners have been faced with an increasingly complex investment landscape to navigate. Having to deal with fast paced market shocks and recovery during 2020 has initiated a re-examination of whether traditional allocation rules are still viable in the current climate.

The relationship between fiscal and monetary policy has become increasingly intertwined, provoking thought leaders to question whether Central Banks will remain independent, as well as the trajectory of quantitative easing and inflation.

Designed with the input of asset owners, the Institutional Fixed Income Summit brings together the community of European investment, asset allocation and treasury professionals to explore, discuss and debate strategies to manage liquidity and investment risk, and explore the institutional fixed income industry evolution related to ESG integration, and increased automation and digitalisation.

 

ATTEND THE MONEY MARKET USERS FORUM ON 23RD NOVEMBER
