As a senior manager in technology and operations, in these tight times, you will be asking: What is the aim of your business? What do departments want to achieve if they had free-reign? And how can you work better to support them?
Since we research the agenda with professionals like you we’ve built it to addresses exactly that. We’ll also be looking at the impact of regulations on IT and operational practices, the movement of outsourcing up the value chain, how operational risk can be a money-maker, and going global. Have a look at the full agenda if you’d like to see the full set of subjects in store.
But it’s not just the top-notch topics that make spending time out of the office at this conference worthwhile. It’s how you discuss them and with who. This is a buy-side event and it’s the buy-side’s perspective you’ll be hearing on how they are tackling the issues of today and what they learnt in the process. All shapes and sizes of company’s are represented, and with tech and ops professionals there you’ll get the business as well as the implementation view.
You also have the opportunity to visit any of our collocated events: Buy-Side Data Management, OTC Derivatives for Fund Management, Client Reporting & Communications and Performance Measurement & Investment Risk. That way you can make sure you only attend sessions that are relevant to you.
What’s more, the 300 attendees at the collocated events mean you can get some serious networking done across all departments. Or stay within Technology & Operational strategy and talk with your peers on the day to get connections and build lasting relationships for some powerful value for money.
Don’t want to take my word?
“I have nothing but praise for TOpStrat NA. Along with the other collocated events, it was perfectly planned and executed. The sessions were all most informative and the hospitality was some of the best I have experienced at a conference. I am looking forward to next year!”
