1.40pm - 2.20pm: Session 1: Panel: What Stops an Investor From Allocating to Your Fund From an ODD Perspective

Reasons abound as to why investors don’t make an allocation to a manager and it's not always an error or something that's overlooked that's the reason. This panel of investors explains some of the things they screen for during the ODD process that are deal-breakers for them, and why, to help inform your approach.

2.20pm - 3.00pm: Session 2: Panel: How To Manage Cybersecurity and Wire Fraud-Related Risks

The internet has opened up a whole new world for people with malicious intent to commit wire fraud and steal millions of dollars from asset managers around the world. This panel will discuss not only how they do it, how a lack of wire fraud understanding can result in an investor ODD “red flag”, and how you can prevent it, but also what you don’t know about holes in your cybersecurity insurance and crime policies – and how to fill them.
