Description: The third annual Australia EQD will be held at the Park Hyatt Hotel Melbourne on March 24-25, 2020, featuring Australian superannuation funds, overseas investors, asset managers and sellside counterparties coming together to share the latest thinking in systematic investing, alternative risk premia, volatility as well as to connect with their peers.

This is an intensive two-day event that will cover the latest developments in cross-asset volatility, ARP, machine learning in quantitative investment management and environmental, sustainable and governance investing from the perspectives of traders, portfolio managers and asset allocators based around the world.

Australia is a natural venue for a systematic investing focused conference, with the fourth largest pool of pension fund assets in the world active across multiple markets and strategies. The asset growth and sheer size of the superannuation funds are driving them to look at areas such as ESG/SRI to optimize returns along with systematic strategies across asset classes to diversify, generate yield and hedge risk.
