Cryptocurrencies: Economic Perspectives

22 January 2019, 7:00 PM | Beijing
CFA Society Beijing

数字加密技术的发展使得不仅国家可以通过货币发行展示其主权属性,社区和社群也可以通过发行数字货币来彰显其独特的价值追求,比特币就是保守主义和民粹主义思潮与区块链技术的结合体。然而,由于在短短的不到十年之间,全世界突然出现了上千种相互竞争的数字货币,要逐一了解他们的特性就不仅仅是"不便"了,必须有自上而下的宏观视角和深入本质的共性探索。

从经济学视角出发审视数字货币,我们会对其动因、优势和约束有更多的认识;结合货币经济学和网络经济学的分析框架,还可对其发展前景进行更明确的判断。

What is the point of a Fund Manager?

31 January 2019, 12:15 PM | Sydney
CFA Society Sydney

Stewart Investors once set interviewees for graduate roles the essay question “what is the point of a fund manager”. There is probably no incontrovertibly correct answer to the question, but we believe the investment philosophy of Stewart Investors may be an acceptably good answer in the long run.

Although the presentation will discuss why this might be, there is more emphasis on previous and likely future mistakes made and to be made, both personally, and in the world of emerging markets and equity investment more broadly. Learning from mistakes is far easier than learning from successes, and usually more interesting to discuss.

CFA SOCIETY SINGAPORE INVESTMENT CONFERENCE 2019 "FUTURE OF THE INVESTMENT PROFESSION"

15 February 2019, 2:00 AM | Singapore
CFA Society Singapore | 4 CE Credit & CPD Hours

PREPARING NOW FOR A DIFFERENT FUTURE  

The future of the investment industry is important for the functioning of the global economy, for the approximately 2 million workers it employs, and for the clients and end investors that depend on it to manage around $100 trillion in assets.

Relevant megatrends include technological advances, redefined client preferences, new macroeconomic conditions, different regulatory regimes reflecting geopolitical changes, and demographic shifts. The industry’s potential future state is further complicated by important issues that are very specific to investment organizations, such as trends in digitization and commoditization, downward pressure on fees, pressures from sustainability, new tech-centric business models, and other investment innovations.

This conference provides insights for professionals interested in hearing about future trends and factors shaping investment management organizations and their impact on society.
