The investment landscape continues to evolve across all facets of the industry. Investors look at history and hypothesize how their assets will perform in a future of inevitable rising interest rates; product developers contemplate global regulations, investment passports, complex products, etc.; and investment managers attune themselves to the changing expectations of their clients. Additionally, with all the advances of the past and expectations for the future, how will industry respond to the utilization of Technology?

For this Conference, "Looking Back. Looking Forward – Expectations vs Reality in Investing", IMAS is proud to announce an exceptional guest speaker list of industry experts, all influential in their own disciplines, to dissect these topics, challenge deeply ingrained notions and impart various investment truths and realities as we explore the opportunities that exist in the investment landscape.
