WORLD’S LEADING FEMALE ECONOMIST NOREENA HERTZ TO KEYNOTE SUMMIT
BOSTON, September 16, 2010: Linedata (LIN:FP), the global solutions provider dedicated to the investment management and credit community, today announced Linedata Exchange 2010, an investment management industry summit developed to bridge the gap between the current state-of-the-industry and the future. Held in New York City, October 18 and 19, the summit will feature keynote speaker Professor Noreena Hertz, currently one of the most influential economists on the international stage.
Linedata Exchange is expected to be the premier meeting place for the investment community to network and to access the latest information on new regulations, technology and best industry practices. Through interactive panel and speaker sessions across multiple tracks, representatives from wealth management, fund administration, hedge funds, mutual funds, pension funds, and trust companies will gain unparalleled access to leading speakers and panelists coupled with unmatched networking opportunities. Linedata Exchange will cover top-of-mind topics affecting today’s investment professionals including:
- Coming Regulation
- The Future of Trading
- New Challenges for Hedge Funds
- The Role of Fund Administrators
“The primary goal of Linedata Exchange is to open dialogues in the investment community where our shared experiences stand to position all of us for a successful future,” said Annie Morris, Managing Director for Linedata North America. “Far too often the financial community sees itself as disparate entities. Our speakers will help draw the parallels between all of our markets, demonstrating how interconnected we really are.”
Leading the dialogue will be Noreena Hertz, the world’s leading female economist, professor, speaker and best-selling author. For more than two decades, Professor Hertz’s economic predictions have not only been accurate and ahead of the curve, but crucial for the success of the world’s economy. Following the financial meltdown and recession of 2008-09, many commentators have described Professor Hertz as a visionary.
“We are thrilled to add Professor Hertz to our 2010 Linedata Exchange speakers roster,” said Ms. Morris. “Professor Hertz is a true visionary who has leveraged her knowledge to accurately predict shifts in our global markets and financial world. She understands the interconnected nature of the financial universe and her informed perspective will no doubt stand to question our status-quo processes and drive discussions on the future of our industry.”
Attendees will benefit from Professor Hertz’s experiences working with the world’s most influential decision makers, and just as she predicted the economic collapse, she helps debunk the myths of the last decade to leverage opportunities in an uncertain market.
