Compelling sessions

Already in its 28th edition, the ALFI GLobal Distribution Conference has learned to play an important role in connecting fund professionals, distributors, investors and asset managers. The conference generally attracts around 700 senior fund industry participants from Luxembourg and abroad.

Many essential themes will be covered in the two-day programme:

  • Data: an examination of how data contributes to distribution – is the asset manager becoming a data manager?
  • Young perspectives: millenials’ thoughts about money and financial planning, the need for a fund shopping app etc. This panel will be composed of millennials only.
  • Pressure on profitability: New pricing structures, lower fees, distribution platforms or enhanced D2C… how do distributors cope?
  • ESG: how to match the client’s ESG preferences with the right financial products?
