Event Overview

The Asset Management and Investors Council (AMIC), ICMA’s forum for the international asset management industry and the global investor community, will be holding its next bi-annual conference in London in November. Key ICMA priorities including benchmark reform and transition to risk-free rates, mandatory buy-ins, the evolution of the landscape for investment research as well as securitisation will be discussed from a buy-side perspective.

ICMA's membership today includes 180 firms with direct buy side interest. AMIC aims to bridge the interest between its buy and sell side members, identifying solutions to practical issues for members at a technical level and engages with regulatory authorities on its own behalf or as part of a cross-industry group, amongst others.

Admission: All buyside representatives including other financial market participants are invited to attend. This event is free of charge; however, registration in advance is essential.
