We invite you to the eighth annual Insight Summit, brought to you by the AQR Asset Management Institute at London Business School.
We have gone past the ‘new normal’. Low inflation was the norm for 20 years, investors must now confront a world with high and variable inflation. Financial markets are facing potential further disruption from crypto assets and decentralized finance. We have entered the new abnormal.
The Insight Summit strives to provide the best of both academic and practitioner insights on critical issues impacting the investment industry today.
