About
Asset managers and asset owners are yet to fully unleash the potential of new fintech innovations in their quest for better returns. Part of the challenge is the scale and volume of emerging technologies, analytics and data with little bandwidth to differentiate passing fads from true value generators.

Join us for the 1-hour event to discuss:

•The value of new fintech innovations in portfolio construction and optimization, enabled by more in-depth ESG data

•How the front office can fast track sourcing and adoption of new value-creation technologies

•Real world example of front office innovation at work from YvesBlue, Qontigo, Intellibonds and KBC Asset Management

•What is driving the need to leverage new fintech innovations in the front office?
