ABOUT EVENT

We are pleased invite you to join us for our second instalments of the Velocity TechTalk on Tuesday 2 July 2019. This unique discussion will focus on the business implications and future challenges of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning solutions in the asset management community.

As more asset managers acquire –or develop- Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) solutions to maximise their alpha generation, market growth and operational cost reduction; it is clear that the industry needs to prepare to face the future challenges these solutions will bring when they become mainstream.
