About the Debate

During the debinar, guests will address issues smart, wise, and energized 21st century investment professionals need to consider such as:

What is the role of big data, alternative data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence in investment management?


What is it that human beings do well? Will machines supplant all human activity? Are there things that people do that will always remain out of reach of machines?


How do investment firms utilize investment professionals?


What skills are investment professionals going to use to compete? Is it increased soft skills, like listening, interviewing, communications, and creativity? Is it hard skills, like programming micro-algorithms, entire trading platforms, automation of idea generation and preliminary analyst, and so on?


What do the tools available to investment pros look like?


What kinds of data are yet to be entered into the picture? Do we have live biometric data on customers while they are shopping, coupled with geolocation? Do we know the psychological profiles of asset owners in response to financial market movements, such that we can anticipate their risk appetite given market gyrations? Are trading algos able to feint and spar with each other for best execution?
