Speakers from international allocators including Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies and APG Asset Management will join officials from Brazilian pension plan FAPES as well as family offices and asset managers to discuss alternative risk premia and quantitative trading at LatAm ARP 2020. The event will take place at the Hotel Unique in São Paulo on March 10. Registration is now open here.

Mike Ruetz, deputy chief investment officer at Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies, Francisco Funari, fund manager at Canvas Capital, Rodrigo Eboli, portfolio manager in Bradesco Asset Management’s investment solutions team, Anna Lippel, portfolio manager at Bradesco, Rodrigo Terni, portfolio manager at Giant Steps Capital, as well as officials from FAPES, one of Brazil’s largest pension plans, will all take the stage. As Brazil’s institutional investors face a new era of historic low interest rates and reforms to the pension system, risk premia and new innovations in investment strategies are coming into their own in the region. LatAm ARP will bring together leading local minds as well as top investors from abroad to share new ways to optimize returns and generate yield. Local and regional investors will have the chance to network with and listen to experiences shared by allocators from North America and Europe, while sellside counterparties will present the latest in research on portfolio construction and trading strategies.

A full agenda will be published next week. Contact Dennis Kesolitz for sponsorship opportunities and Elinor Comlay for buyside speaking opportunities.
