AI & Data Science in Trading brings together experts in the use of AI and advanced data analytic techniques within asset management, primarily for finding alpha, managing risk and optimizing portfolios. Initially exclusively used by analysts within quantitative firms, automation and outsourced tools are allowing fundamental firms to benefit from these techniques - providing new insight for their discretionary strategies.

Now in its fifth edition, rotating between the global financial hubs of NYC and London, a high level conference provides cutting edge sessions from asset managers and investment banks with plenary sessions in the mornings and three parallel streams each afternoon. Over 100 world-class speakers are selected by our Advisory Board to share their knowledge and experience in both solo and interactive panel sessions.
