MIT Sloan Investment Conference 2019


 

 

I am heading up to Boston for some hosting duties at Friday’s annual MIT Sloan Investment Conference. Its my third year here, and its a pretty amazing event. As you would guess, its heavy on technology and quant investing.

This year’s theme is “The Investor’s Perspective”, where we seek to take the viewpoint of the institutional investor.

They have a great line up, including Marcie Frost, CEO of California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS); Jeffrey Shames, Chairman and CEO of MFS Investment Management; Ted Seides, CFA | CIO | Perch Bay Group;

Its a jam-packed 1 day event, and if you are anywhere near Boston and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, see if you can score some tickets and check it out.

You can see the Agenda here, and the full list of Speakers here.

Here are the panels I am moderating:
