ICMA Asset Management and Investors Council (AMIC) Conference - Investment environment: Recent shifts and their consequences
 
Hosted by BNP Paribas Fortis

Date and Venue

Time: 12.30 -17.35

Venue:
BNP Paribas Fortis 
1 rue de la Chancellerie
Brussels


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 was an opportunity to hear directly from the international investment community about the challenges they are facing.
