Quant at the Intersection of Responsible Investment

Quant at the Intersection of Responsible Investment

Join the PRI and CAIA on Monday 29 January for a half day event in London, hosted by Man Group. The agenda includes two panel sessions that will explore the challenges and approaches to quantitative investing in responsible investment. While factor investing and smart beta products in the ESG space have seen significant investor demand, alternative approaches – from long/short equities models to CTA/macro strategies – continue working to establish best practices and define the scope of their relevance. 

For questions, please contact Jason Mitchell, Man Group.
