Europe EQD is the largest systematic investing forum for institutional investors in EMEA. Europe EQD allows asset managers, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, insurers, family offices and private banks to network and connect with peers, to learn about the latest approaches to systematic investing across asset classes and markets, and to hear case studies on how investors seek to increasingly diversify their portfolios. The content at Europe EQD is shaped by the leading institutional investors and portfolio managers active in systematic investing.

Visit the Europe EQD 2019 page to view past sessions and speakers.


The theme of Days 1 and 2 is diversified alternatives covering a broad range of topics. Speakers and panelists will provide case studies covering areas such as multi-asset investing, risk premia, volatility, fixed income, global macro as well as traditional alternatives such as commodities and private equity.

Day 3 is an institutional investor-only day covering the latest approaches in socially responsible investing and systematic ESG. During Day 3, investors will network and listen to case studies covering ESG implementation across asset classes, what challenges exist – data, monitoring, reporting, dialogue, implementation – and ultimately how SRI/ESG can be recognized as a driver of value.
