IMN's 24th Annual Global Indexing & ETFs conference opens with a series of intimate discussions led by some of the brightest minds in the industry. Introducing the two and a half day forum is Research Affiliates Chairman & CEO Rob Arnott, delivering incisive commentary on the changing face of smart beta, its distinction from factor investing and the future of both in an increasingly competitive landscape.
Following a dissection of some of the most compelling research on quantitative strategies is Riskalyze's interactive discussion of the newest tools available to advisors, as well as guidance on how to best apply them using a risk-forward approach. And to further explore the risks and opportunities of innovation and disruption is a panel curated by the industry's pioneering non-profit organization promoting gender equality and empowerment: Women in ETFs.
The past 20 years have seen a proliferation of smart beta index strategies, with the term being applied to certain strategies that don’t fit the original definition. And with the line between active and passive strategies becoming increasingly blurred, it’s even more important to first define “smart beta” before determining whether or not it even works. The good news is that a wealth of research supports the notion that factor investing isn’t necessarily broken, it’s just riddled with pitfalls that adept managers can side-step, when equipped with the proper framework. In this introductory address, Research Affiliates Chairman & CEO Rob Arnott explores the next iteration of quantitative strategies and how they’ll show up in future funds, asking us to consider: do we have to choose between a “free lunch” and risk premium, or can we have the best of both?
Join Riskalyze for an engaging session on how the advisor of the future combats shrinking margins and the spotlight on advisory fees by setting better expectations with clients and powerfully illustrating the value of advice. Are advisors in danger of needing to fundamentally change fee structures in the near future? We're not convinced. Learn how making investment decisions through the lens of a risk-first approach has proven successful in the face of an ever-changing regulatory landscape, and see how a brand-new framework for measuring risk alongside potential return allows advisors to score ETFs and the portfolios they live in from an efficiency standpoint, so advisors can carefully construct portfolios that meet the distinct objectives and risk appetites of an increasingly diverse investor pool.
The pioneering women’s group for the ETF industry furthers the career goals of its more than 4,400 members globally through education, networking and philanthropy. Drawing on the insights of its membership across the asset management space, Women in ETFs' panel discussion will shine a light on what global investing’s next wave will look like, and how we should best prepare for the transformations ahead.
Join Borealis Global Advisory for an engaging presentation on how advisors, using a simple back-of-the-envelope computation, can set return expectations from individual countries for buy-and-hold clients and make investment decisions through an unconventional application of a market valuation measurement.

Eleven percent of investment leaders see the investment industry’s effect on society as very positive, but 51 percent think it could be very positive—contingent on stronger principles, according to a recent industry survey by the CFA Institute. In fact, corporations worldwide are being held at an ever-higher standard by their stakeholders to be environmental stewards, deliver social value, and demonstrate ethical and transparent governance. A new generation of investors, clients, and employees is demanding that corporations act with purpose. Setting the stage for a series of discussions around innovation and disruption within the asset management industry is Stephen Horan, PhD, CFA, CIPM, CAIA from CFA Institute. Drawing on his 25 years of experience as a practitioner and educator, Horan will explain why purposeful capitalism is good for society as well as good for business, before being joined by Mona Naqvi, Senior Director, ESG Indices of S&P Dow Jones Indices, who will ask a series of questions aimed at uncovering how investors can advance the goals of purposeful capitalism.

Some of the pages on our group websites may include message boards, blogs or other facilities for generating content from users. Any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should always be careful when deciding to post any personal data. User generated content is also subject to our site Terms & Conditions.
Business or Asset Sale
If we sell a business or assets we may need to disclose your personal data to the prospective buyer of such business or assets.
If Euromoney, or any of our group companies is sold or sells our assets or is acquired by a third party, then personal data about our customers will be acquired by that third party. A transfer of your personal data in these circumstances would be necessary so that the services you have contracted for can still be delivered, or so that you can continue to enjoy the benefits of our free products and services. You will receive notice if a new controller assumes responsibility for your personal data.
Additional Third Party Disclosures
We may disclose your personal data to other third parties in the following situations:
- To third party partners who help us by providing services such as technology, marketing, advisory or other services. These third parties only receive encrypted data and may only process personal data to provide those services to us.
- Where we are required by law or regulation to do so. In each case we will seek, where practicable, to minimise the amount of data that is disclosed.
- If required to protect the rights and interests of other users and/or Euromoney and its affiliates (including our employees, agents and contractors), or as otherwise set out in our Terms & Conditions. This may include exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection.
We may include small pixel tags (small image files) within the emails we send you in order to determine whether our emails are opened and/or whether the hyperlinks inside our emails are clicked through. We may also collect browser, location and the device used to engage with our email communications. This information allows us to better understand whether we are meeting our users’ needs and how we can improve our communications. No other information is collected. You can opt out of receiving our direct marketing emails either by following the instructions in each email, or by contacting us (see the “Who We Are” section of this Privacy Notice).
Some of the Euromoney group companies are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA). If you have consented to being contacted by our group companies, then the transfer of your personal data will be made according to the terms of an international data sharing agreement that contains obligations approved by European data protection regulators. Any of our group companies that receive your personal data will be co-controllers of that data, which means they may determine how they process your personal data – although they may only use it for the purposes for which it was shared, unless you are informed of new or additional processing activities.
We may also transfer personal data to third party service providers as described in this Privacy Notice which are located outside the EEA. Where we conduct these transfers, we take all steps necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with applicable privacy legislation, either by only sending your personal data to jurisdictions that provide an adequate degree of legal protection for your data or by imposing approved contractual terms on these third parties.
We have a data retention policy that ensures we don’t use or store your personal data for longer than necessary. We consider the following issues to determine retention periods:
- Guidance from the UK Information Commissioner or other regulatory agency, or industry best practice recommendations;
- The business rationale for collection and expiry of the purpose for which personal data was collected;
- Our ongoing ability to ensure the accuracy of the data; and
- Legal and regulatory requirements.
We may occasionally need to keep personal data for either shorter or longer periods than specified in our retention policy. In such circumstances, application of the retention period to the data will be temporarily suspended. The suspension of an applicable retention period will be carried out in a manner that respects the rights and interests of all persons concerned.
You can use our Preference Centre to select the topics that are of interest to you so that we can send you publications and information about our products and services that are especially relevant to you. You can also choose the channels we use to contact you (email, phone, post, etc.) and can also opt-out of receiving marketing communications.
You have certain rights in relation to your personal data which include the following:
Access & Portability
You may request access to any personal data of yours for which Euromoney is responsible as controller. Unless there are legal or regulatory reasons for not doing so, we will confirm whether we process any of your personal data and if we do, we will provide you with the following information: the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data, any recipients of your personal data, the applicable retention period and the data source. Copies of your personal data will be made available to you in a structured, machine-readable format.
You may also request that we transfer the personal data that you have submitted to us, to another controller, where it is technically feasible for us to do so.
If you have consented to our processing of your personal data, or if we are processing your personal data in order to fulfil our contractual obligations to you, then you can submit a request that we transfer your personal data to another data controller.
Rectification, Restriction, Objection
You have the right to request that Euromoney rectify any errors in the personal data that we process. In some circumstances, you may also be able to ask for the erasure of personal data, and/or request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. You may also object to the processing of your personal data for sales or marketing purposes.

To exercise any of these rights, please contact us by post or email at the following addresses:

Euromoney will do our best to respond to any questions and address any of your concerns. You are also able to register any complaints regarding the processing of your personal data directly with the UK Information Commissioner.
Euromoney is committed to keeping your personal data secure and we will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data from loss, unauthorised use, disclosure or destruction. Although we do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee that any transmission of data is without risk. We have therefore implemented information security policies and rules, staff training on information security, and technical measures to ensure the integrity of data that we have under our control.
All our employees, contractors and data processors (i.e. those third parties that process personal data on our behalf) are required to keep such data confidential and not to use it for any purpose other than the performance of services we have requested.
Our site may contain links to other websites – including, for example, providers of payment processing services. Euromoney is not responsible for the privacy and data collection practices of third party sites and we therefore recommend that you review the privacy policies and terms of service of each site you visit.
