The 11th Annual Global Volatility Summit will be held virtually from Monday September 21 to Wednesday September 23, 2020.
The content for the annual summit is thoughtfully designed to educate institutional investors on the use of volatility and quantitative related strategies.
Usually, the summit is located at Chelsea Piers in New York City; this year the summit will be online due to Covid-19. Virtual GVS will consist of a few hours over each day, composed of panel discussions with managers and investors around the globe.
The panelists include hedge fund managers across the volatility, tail hedging, quant, and macro spaces to discuss their views on the markets and use of such strategies within the context of institutional investment portfolios.
