Uncovering Alpha Using Alternative Datasets

We cordially invite you to attend our cocktail reception and panel discussion…

The asset management industry is in a period of profound change. A confluence of factors – downward pressure on fees, increased technology and regulatory compliance costs, and difficulty generating alpha due to steadily rising markets, to name a few – have created a situation where managers are being forced to look long and hard at all aspects of their business.

On the trading desk, this obviously creates challenges, but at the same time the advent of new technologies have resulted in clear opportunities as well. Nowhere is this more apparent than with the rise of Alternative Data sources that institutional traders, for the first time, have been able to harness to contribute meaningful alpha through the trading process.

Join us for a panel discussion moderated by Dan Furstenberg, managing director at Jefferies & Co. and featuring several of the industry’s leading market data, analytics and trading technology providers, as well as [TBD BUY SIDE TRADER], to debate the role that alternative data is playing on the buy side trading desk today and beyond. Complimentary registration!

When : Wednesday, May 17 | 5:00 – 7:00pm
     
Where : The Yale Club | 50 Vanderbilt Avenue | New York City
     
Panel Members : Tom Doris, CEO and Founder, OTAS Technologies
Bruce Fador, Chief Commercial Officer, Wall Street Horizon
