Citywire will soon be at the picturesque setting of the Runnymede-on-Thames Hotel in Surrey for the eighth edition of its Citywire Alternative Ucits Retreat.
It is one of the most long-standing in our calendar and has built its reputation for bringing together the leading talents across Europe managing alternative strategies.
This year is no different as over the course of the event, delegates will meet with ten top managers to be able to get to the heart of what makes their investment style outperform.
We have also drawn together a line-up of engaging keynote speakers, all leaders in their field, who will offer insight into a range of factors affecting the investment landscape and the decisions we make as investors.
Joining us will be Nick Chater a leading behavioural scientist and who will tell us what he's learnt from his research into human decision making.
This is as well as Rand Hindi, a data scientist and an expert in machine learning, who thinks the AI-led changes will bring unexpected outcomes into our lives.
