5th Annual Systematic Investment Symposium

Date - To be confirmed
Mandarin Oriental, Hyde Park


Due to the impact of COVID-19 on our event programme, we have decided to cancel the upcoming Systematic Investment Symposium, which was to be held on 24 - 25 September at the Mandarin Oriental, Hyde Park. 

The health and success of our clients, partners and Institutional Investor colleagues are our top priority. We are exploring opportunities to organise virtual webinars in order to stay abreast of the important themes taking place within our industry.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.


The Systematic Investment Symposium offers an off-the-record meeting between Europe's biggest investors in QUANT-based strategies and experts from the asset management community. Through case studies, presentations of the very latest research and working groups, the audience will expand their knowledge and understanding of how QUANT strategies deliver sustainable returns.

Those involved in allocating to, designing and implementing quant or systematic investment strategies find their skills in unprecedented demand by investors. As returns across portfolios have faltered since the global financial crisis, more investors have begun to investigate the smart beta revolution, factor-based investing and systematic strategies in general. This two-day conference will bring together those involved in these strategies for high-level debate and presentations on the latest thinking in this field.  


The agenda is curated by our expert advisory board and will address the current issues and trends faced by the quant community. Last year, agenda topics included:

  • About Last Year... Explaining What Happened in 2018
  • The Factor Farmers - Combing Factors for the Best Strategies
  • Art & Science of Implementation
  • What Have We Learned About Fixed Income Factor Investing Over the Last 20 Years
  • Comparing the Multitude of Multi-Asset Strategies - What Makes A Winner?
  • A Pause for Breath, or A Race That's Been Run - Where Next for Smart Beta?
  • Creating the Optimal Blend of Smart Beta Strategies
