The session is tailored for COOs, CIOs, and Department Heads.

4. Consolidate Your Investment Management Systems

Many investment managers still operate on a patchwork of single-purpose, unconnected IT systems, where data doesn’t flow freely and isn’t available in real time.

Join this session to learn about the trend towards consolidating investment management IT systems, and what it takes to make a successful transition to a consolidated platform.

Speakers

5. Alternative Investments: Standardized and transparent data

Why are Limited Partners (LPs) requesting more data from their General Partners? Primarily because of increasing regulatory pressure for greater transparency. The problem, however, is lack of standardization.

Join this session to gain a better understanding of how LPs use underlying portfolio data and for a discussion on what the standards should be.
