On 28 November 2018, the first edition of the Mediobanca SGR Annual Conference was held. The think tank, which focused on new challenges in asset management, this year discussed: “Challenges in asset allocation”. As well as Mediobanca SGR, experts from Morgan Stanley and Société Générale were invited.
Francesco Saverio Vinci, General Manager of Mediobanca, and Emilio Franco, CEO of Mediobanca SGR presided over the events, with two main issues debated in the course of the day: “Is this time really different? Echoes from the end of business cycle”, and “The TINA effect on your portfolios: from yield enhancement to systematic hedging strategies and risk-parity portfolios”.
The issue of big data and artificial intelligence was also discussed with Refinitiv.
Partners in the initiative, in addition to Thomson Reuters, include CFA Society Italy, which welcomed the new CFA Charterholders.
