ICMA Asset Management and Investors Council (AMIC) Conference

 

Hosted by: APG Asset Management




Date: 7 March 2019
Time: 13:30-17:00
Location: Amsterdam


Event Overview

The Asset Management and Investors Council (AMIC) is the independent voice of the buy-side within ICMA.

In this rapidly changing regulatory environment, as asset managers and institutional investors assume an increasingly important role in financial markets and as the activities of  sell-side and the buy-side become blurred, the Asset Management and Investors Council is an essential forum for a cross-section of the industry to consider these and other pressing issues.

The March AMIC conference was open to all on the buy-side and will an opportunity to hear directly from the international investment community about the challenges they were facing. The conference featured discussions on the future of sustainable finance in an evolving regulatory landscape and systemic risk in asset management.
