Save the date – Spring Event 2017
The application of big data in finance
Big data has spread from its initial commercial use in marketing and customer services to the financial sector. During the Spring Event three interesting speakers will address the big data trend in finance from different angles. Together they will guide us through their experiences of using smart ways to collect and process unstructured data in order to make better investment returns and get a better grip on risks. And lastly, not to mention, the costs at which these endeavors might come: is the privacy of the clients we tend to serve at stake? Will a big data scandal lead to the next plunge of trust in the financial sector?
The seminar will take place on Thursday April 20th, starting at 2.45 pm, and will be hosted by APG Asset Management at their office in Amsterdam (Zuidas). Please save this date in your calendars! The official invitation and agenda will follow in due course, so watch your inbox and/or the TopQuants homepage.
Of course, to conclude the event, there will the usual complimentary drinks and walking dinner with plenty of networking opportunities for all participants.
Kind regards from the TopQuants team.
