Citywire Smart Beta Retreat 2013: the final countdown
by Dylan Lobo on Oct 29, 2013 at 13:46
After the successful launch of our Smart Beta Retreat last year we're back with another star-studded line up.
The event, which will take place on 26 November at the Pennyhill Park Hotel in Surrey, allows discretionary and advisory investors meet a wide range of group to help build innovative beta strategies.
Guest speakers include Nick Vardy, founder and chief investment officer of stockpickers newsletter Global Guru Capital, acclaimed economics journalist Paul Mason and the former head of group regulatory risk at HBOS Paul Moore, who will share a fascinating and frank personal account of the poor practices that left the bank on the brink and how this gave him an understanding of regulating risk.
There has been plenty of debate on the Smart Beta concept on Wealth Manager in recent weeks, with iShares warning that Smart Beta is not always smarter, while SPDR boss Jim Ross said confusion over what the term exactly means could lead to mis-selling.
At the Retreat we will be joined by a host of specialists who, in a series of workshops, will shed light the issues and opportunities on this increasingly important investment area.
The line up and topics include:
* Smarter Equity Investing
Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management: Vincent Denoiseux
* Back to basics - how do you calculate the cost of an ETF
HSBC Global Asset Management: Carmen González-Calatayud
