Economic Modelling and its advantages in Asset Management today

Date: 21 May 2024

Time: 11am EDT/ 4pm BST

As the global recovery becomes entrenched, we are finding a greater appetite from asset managers to incorporate economic modelling and scenario analysis into their investment process, and this event is designed to explore new innovations in this area.

The roundtable will be hosted by Innes McFee, Chief Global Economist and Head of Macro Services, and Alessandro Theiss, Director of Financial Modelling & Scenarios at Oxford Economics. During the event, we will cover the following topics:

  • Techniques for modelling financial market returns & macroeconomic forecasting
     
  • Analyzing the impact of macroeconomic scenarios on returns
     
  • Applying Model results to drive Strategic Asset Allocation decisions

Note: Can’t make it to any of the sessions? Feel free to register for any session and we will automatically share the recording with you 3 hours after the webinar has finished.
