Roundtable Asset Management Information Technology Exchange (RAMIX) 2016

07 - 08 Nov 2016

Organised by Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue
Location: Rüschlikon/Zurich, Switzerland

About the event

With the increasing influence of FinTech on global financial services today, it is more important than ever before that our firms monitor and create opportunities that enable us to remain competitive and relevant.

With this, I am excited to welcome you to the second Roundtable Asset Management Information Technology Exchange (RAMIX), focused on discussing strategic topics that are most important for Asset Management IT executives.

How is emerging technology opening the door to new investment opportunities, and conversely, how might technology threaten services we currently offer? What kind of working styles should we adopt to foster a culture ready to seize opportunities and not simply stagnate? How might our increasingly hyper-digital world appear from a cyber criminal's perspective?

As last year, the roundtable will feature keynote speeches, expert-led sessions and interactive discussions. This is a unique opportunity to connect with peers facing similar challenges and exchange ideas.

The event will be held at Swiss Re's Centre for Global Dialogue on Tuesday, 08 November, with a pre-event dinner on Monday, 07 November. Participation is by invitation only, and registration can be confirmed directly through this website.

I look forward to welcoming familiar as well as new faces at RAMIX 2016!
