EDUCATION SESSION #1045
Fireside Chat with Leda Braga, Founder and CEO, Systematica Investments
Many investment managers believe in the power of data and technology innovation. Will systematic and algorithmic trading-oriented strategies eclipse other approaches? If so, how will it change the face of the industry? How will the shift to data and technology affect the qualifications required of successful investment managers?

As a leader in quantitatively driven investment philosophy, Leda Braga has out-performed the markets and managers for years; she is widely viewed as one of the most powerful women in the hedge fund industry.

Braga will share her views on quantitative practices and what lies ahead for those who follow this approach.


Bring your questions and gain insights into the role and power of quantitative investment strategies. Share your views with colleagues as you network over lunch, before the session.
