Event Overview

The Asset Management and Investors Council (AMIC) is the independent voice of the buy-side within ICMA. As asset managers and institutional investors assume an increasingly important role in financial markets, and the activities of the sell-side and the buy-side become blurred, the AMIC provides an essential forum for a cross-section of the industry to respond to regulatory initiatives and develop best  practice in all areas of market activity.
The AMIC meeting, open to all on the buy-side, is held twice a year and offers an opportunity to find out what the international investment community is thinking about on a range of market issues.
On the agenda for the 23 March meeting in Frankfurt:
•   Keynote speech from Torsti Silvonen, Deputy Director General, Directorate General Market Operations, ECB
•   Asset allocation adapting to the changing macroeconomic environment – what to expect in 2017 - QE, inflation, interest rate rises.
•   Systemic risk – risk management for asset managers.
•   The rise of green investment – new asset allocation policies and reporting requirements

 For any queries, please contact Leigh Anne Cooke.

This event is hosted by Allianz Global Investors.

Admission: This event is open to all ICMA members and all interested financial market participants. To register, please click here.
