True Partner joins the Annual Global Volatility Summit in New York City

In-person gathering for institutional investors

The 14th Annual Global Volatility Summit will be held on Tuesday, September 12, 2023 at Pier Sixty in New York City.

The Global Volatility Summit is an in-person gathering of several hundred attendees including hedge fund managers, industry experts and senior investment professionals across the financial markets. The content for the annual summit is thoughtfully designed to educate institutional investors on the use of volatility and quantitative related strategies.

At the event, panelists include hedge fund managers across the volatility, tail hedging, quant, and macro spaces to discuss their views on the markets and the use of such strategies within the context of institutional investment portfolios. Next to volatility trading, the event will also feature a keynote presentation by Tim Peake, the British astronaut who will among others discuss his time at the International Space Station. While at first glance an astronaut’s expertise may appear remote from the realm of volatility trading, the key for both is managing complexity in a highly uncertain environment. Another similarity can be seen in the involvement of proverbial rocket scientists.

Sharing knowledge with investors

In its thirteen year, the Global Volatility Summit is dedicated to educating investors and providing thought leadership around the volatility markets. Through the lens of volatility, quantitative, and systematic strategy experts, the annual conference is developed for senior investment professionals managing global institutional investment portfolios.

Global Volatility Summit brings together experienced hedge fund managers, industry experts, and senior investment professionals that manage portfolios for some of the world’s largest pensions, sovereign wealth funds, endowments, foundations, insurance companies, asset managers and banks.

Discussions, panels and presentations are designed to examine the various roles of volatility, tail hedging, quant and macro strategies in the context of an institutional investment portfolio. Next to thought-provoking keynote speakers, the event facilitates collaborative networking sessions.

During the summit, investors will have the opportunity to meet our team to continue discussing the topics of the day.
