FI Breakfast Briefing: Big Data’s impact on diversity in asset management

How is big data transforming how fund companies are approaching the diversity mismatch in their ranks.

Venue: Lamb's Club, New York

Diversity advocates in recent years have pointed to statistics that show corporate diversity’s positive impacts on performance. However, the latest data continues to show that male portfolio managers outnumber their female counterparts at a ratio of nine to one, for example, and female directors still make up less than 25% of all fund board seats, despite major strides in recent years. Other types of diversity still have a long way to go as well.

Please join Fund Intelligence for a breakfast briefing on May 16 at the Lamb’s Club in New York to discuss the ways big data is transforming how fund companies are approaching the diversity mismatch in their ranks.

Members and those interested in Fund Directions, Fund Action, Fund Operations, Compliance Reporter, Private Asset Management and Fund Map are invited to attend.

This breakfast briefing will speak to issues impacting both the front and back offices at mutual fund firms, including strategies and case studies for recruiting, retention, boardroom diversity and the intersection of the fund industry and tech.

Speakers include:
Lori Schneider, Partner, K&L Gates
George Wilbanks, Managing Partner, Wilbanks Partners

Potential discussion topics include:

  • Artificial intelligence to weed out unconscious bias
  • Big data as a tool to recruit and retain diverse candidates
  • Testing diversity initiatives with data
  • Client-facing diversity initiatives and investing as way to attract diverse candidates
