  QE and European Corporate Bonds
Milan, 10 March - Hotel de la Ville - 12 pm

With the QE steamroller of the ECB shoving a wall of money into EU government bonds, covered bonds and ABS, investors are being pushed up the risk curve. The crowding out at the lowest end of the risk spectrum increases allocation to the next segment: euro investment grade credits. Does this mean the asset class no longer offers reasonable opportunities to make money? Does the low yield on European high quality corporate bonds imply investors should shy away from this space altogether? Rik den Hartog, CFA of Kempen Capital Management will explain how a close look at the market does reveal some interesting opportunities for sophisticated investors, which can be exploited by active managers using the right tools.

  Big Data - ADACI Event
Milan, 21 March

The era of Big Data is underway. Will largescale search data help us create better tools, services, and new goods/products? Big Data is less about data that is big than it is about a capacity to search, aggregate, and cross-reference large data sets.
The ADACI workshop will seek to understand the evolution of this phenomenon and its impact on the management of Operations and Supply Chain.
Participation in the workshop is free upon registration online by 19 of March. Click here
