Day 1
Wednesday, 16 March 2016

Panel Discussion 1

Assets Gathering Panel – “Disruption, Dislocation, Evolution”
Megatrends in demographics and technology are fueling disruption in the investment management industry.  Are we still building AUM the old way?  Business models for procuring capital assets have been evolving in recent years as investment managers and financial intermediaries re-think their value proposition.  Is the dislocation of traditional distribution networks inevitable and is it beneficial for investors?

Panel Discussion 2

Investment Management Panel – “Conviction, Consistency, Revolution”
What lies ahead for investment managers as the world economy slows with declining trade volumes and overall weakened demand?  How do they invest with conviction?  Do they continue to consistently apply their tested investment methodologies or would there be a fundamental shift in the way they approach increasingly volatile and sometimes illiquid markets?

Centre Stage

A Sustainable Financial Eco-System
This session features separate presentations by uniquely experienced and knowledgeable experts who will bring to the forefront the focus of a more sustainable financial eco-system.

Panel Discussion 3

Stakeholders’ Perspectives Panel – “Expectations, Performance, and What Lies Ahead”
These are very testing times as the industry faces a challenging market environment, apart from rising regulatory oversight, variable investment performance and increasing competition.  Do expectations match reality?  We invite stakeholders to a no-holds-barred discussion on what needs to be done by the investment management industry to not just merely survive, but to also remain relevant and to succeed.
