Indexes and Benchmarking 8th Annual Agefi ETF & Index Management Forum 11 February, 2016 - Paris, France
The 8th edition of the Agefi ETF and Index Management Forum will be taking place in Paris on 11 February, 2016.

The event will consist of a series of presentations by experts in their field, with the discussions moderated by journalists from L'Agefi, the leading French media group specialising in providing information and services to professionals in the financial industry, and will close with an award ceremony recognising the best European ETF suppliers.

The following themes will be discussed at the event:
  • The lessons to be learnt from the "flash crash" of American ETFs on 24 August 2015
  • How does smart beta change the business model and practices of index management?
  • Smart beta index management: how to find one's way in a universe abundant with innovations?
  • Market making and execution in the ETF universe: what liquidity management for market stress?
  • Faced with difficulties on the markets and with the return of volatility, towards a reaffirmed place for ETFs and index management in tactical allocation?
Felix Goltz, Head of Applied Research at EDHEC-Risk Institute, and Research Director at ERI Scientific Beta, will be speaking at the event on the topic, "How does smart beta change the business model and practices of index management?". In the index management world, smart beta indices and techniques are developing fast. By creating a bridge between passive and active management, a real change in business models is clearly emerging. How does smart beta combine both approaches?

All presentations will be in French.
