Demystifying ‘smart’ (alternative) betas - Panel discussion 27/05

Event Description

Demystifying ‘smart’ (alternative) betas
As 'smart' (alternative) betas are more and more developped by the fund management industry as an alternative to traditional cap-weighted indices, investors need to be more than ever able to analyse their real added-value and purpose.
Our speakers, Isabelle Bourcier, Head of Business Developpement, OSSIAM, and Etienne Vincent, Head of Systematic Management, THEAM , are part of the leading firms having developped 'smart' (alternative) betas.
Together they will update you on:
• The strategy their firms adopted on 'smart' (alternative) betas and why they made such choices
• The investor needs adressed by these indices, and at which price (including capacity issues)
The real value-added of a fund manager of 'smart' (alternative) betas, as most of the performance may often by explained by bias in value or size
