Nearly 600 participants, including 258 investment managers representatives, 18 nationalities, 67 speakers, 21 Emerging Managers, 12 institutional partners and 5 asset managers awarded!
The only event dedicated to entrepreneurial investment management firms, the Emerging Manager Day 2018 gathered on Wednesday 11 April à Paris 587 participants from different profiles: asset managers, institutional investors, multi-managers, family offices, service providers and Fintech companies.
Launched by a keynote by Philippe Douste-Blazy, UN Under-Secretary-General in charge of Innovative Financing, the morning allowed Fintech startups and entrepreneurial management companies to present 'disruptive' solutions and innovative investment strategies.
In the early afternoon, Mario Therrien, Senior Vice President at the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec shed light on the selection of external managers from an ESG perspective.
The conference offered participants six round tables on functional topics of interest to management companies (innovation and distribution, access to research under MIFID2, digital communication, etc.) and topics related to impact investing: governance, social and environmental impact. Each panel was structured around an asset owner, an entrepreneurial investment manager, and a fund selector or a specialized consultant.
21 boutique managers had the opportunity to pitch in front of an audience of institutional investors and fund selectors: in the morning during 3 one-to-ones and in the afternoon with 15 pitches of 7 minutes within the Fund Dating of the EMD Awards.
Thanks to a dedicated app, the participants attending the Fund Dating could vote and participate in the designation of the 5 managers rewarded.
