ALFI European Asset Management Conference 2018 – Key Takeaways

The second edition of the newly rebranded European asset management conference took place in a new venue this year, offering a casual and cozy feel, facilitating business interactions of over 700 attendees from across Europe.

Under the headline, Product – People – Progress – Prediction, this unmissable annual gathering of the European fund industry offered industry actors valuable insights and updates into the current opportunities and trends, directly from the key decision makers.

Brexit could change how Europe’s cross-border fund industry is regulated. Asset managers are seeking new ways to engage with future and existing clients, and increasingly socially responsible investment is an answer. Meanwhile, the drive for gender diversity and digitalisation is on-going. These challenges and many more were probed at the ALFI European Asset Management Conference 2018.
