We are delighted to be hosting our 2018 Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 24 April 2018, at The Brand Exchange in the City of London.
At this critical time for our industry, our aim will be to focus on what is at the forefront of the members’ interests in the independent research sector, and we hope our agenda will provide the opportunity for discussion, debate and shared learning.
Our focused and practical working sessions will be led by Chris Mortimer, Head of VAT Practice, Macfarlanes LLP, a leading London based law firm. These sessions will focus on the challenges our members are facing with:
– Client Agreements
– General Data Protection (GDPR) Regulations
Our AGM Panel Discussion this year will be chaired by Amar Rajani, founder of Argella Limited, and will debate how the buyside are consuming and paying for external research, and the pivotal role of technology in this. Amar brings to the panel over 20 years’ experience in the financial and technology sectors, primarily with Bloomberg as their Global Product Manager. We are extremely grateful to Amar for his time and support and the wealth of insight and experience he brings to the panel.
Our panel will represent both the FINTECH sector as well as the buyside, and we are sure that Amar, alongside our Panel Participants, will create a platform of discussion and debate to harness further opportunity for our members to engage and contribute to the conversation. Details of the panel participants will be announced next week.
