Week In Preview, May 22-28
This week fundsters are gathering for events in the Big Apple and on the other side of the pond, while 401(k) folk have already converged on Music City and Sin City.
Tomorrow the Paris Europlace Financial Forum team will host their 2017 Paris Europlace International Financial Forum in New York at the Roosevelt Hotel. The day-long event is about pitching "the improved attractiveness of Paris as a European hub in the context of the Brexit" and the election this month of former investment banker Emmanuel Macron as president of France. Indeed, the conference features two panels on Brexit, as well as sessions on balancing financial regulation and growth, the rise of FinTech and of ESG investing (hot topics on the other side of the pond, too, apparently), and more. Big sponsors of the New York event include BNP Paribas, J.P. Morgan, and more.
On Thursday the Irish Funds Industry Association team will host the trade group's Annual Global Funds Conference 2017 at the InterContinental Hotel in Dublin. FinTech and Brexit are both on the agenda there, too. The one-day conference will be preceded by a golf tournament on Wednesday at the Luttrellstown Castle Golf Club, and the conference will be followed by a distribution workshop on Friday at the head office of the law firm William Fry. BBH, Citi, Deloitte, IDA Ireland, J.P. Morgan, Matheson, PWC, RBC Investor & Treasury Services, State Street, and a host of other firms are sponsoring the conference.
Also on Thursday, leaders from Dallas-based liquid alts shop Highland Capital Management will gather in New York City for a mid-year market update media briefing. The policy-focused panel discussion and luncheon, themed around "Investing Under the New Administration," will take place at the Princeton Club of New York. Senior Highland executives expected to attend include: Mark Okada, co-founder and chief investment officer; Michael Gregory, managing director and head of both Highland Alternative Investors and Highland's healthcare equity and credit efforts; and Trey Parker, partner and head of credit.
