Buy Side Club Dinner

Buy Side Club Dinner

  • Location:London, United Kingdon
  • Venue:The Shard
  • Length:06:30 pm – 09:30 pm

Following the huge success of the Buy Side Club’s first dinner discussion in June, the club is once again coming together on the 10th of November in the Shard. This will be an exclusive gathering bringing together COOs, CFOs and senior executives from a select group of asset managers.

The club is intended as an opportunity for those invited to connect with senior peers in an environment which is informal yet confidential, to discuss the most prevalent issues of the day, and to create a global network of industry leaders.

The following guests have already confirmed their attendance:
Managing Director, Legal & Compliance – Capula
Head of Operations – CQS Investment Management
Chief Financial Officer – DIAM International
Head of Trading Operations – Man Group
Research Director – Ruffer
Head of Business Solutions – Sarasin & Partners
Head of IS – Marathon Asset Management

We’ll once again be joined by our Chair, Andrew Simpson, an expert in market structure and regulation. We’ll be discussing the key issues that will be affecting the market over the coming year and what asset managers must do to adapt and avoid stagnation. In each case we will be asking what is going make money, save money, and what is just dealing with regulatory requirements.   Three questions to discuss will be:

  • Is EMIR’s requirement to clear OTC derivatives reducing risk or just increasing costs and stifling markets?
  • Will T + 2 settlement really reduce risk in the market? How can asset managers effectively meet this new requirement?
  • Will T2S bring the stated reductions in post trade costs or not? Could it actually bring far more complexity as custodians, CSDs and CCPs race to provide new services, and does this present new opportunities?

Places are strictly limited so please register now to avoid disappointment.
