ABOUT THE EVENT

Meet the people who shape European finance

L’AGEFI created the European Investors Day (EID) as a meeting place for professionals who are shaping the face of finance in Europe. The first EID will be organised, in partnership with Politico, in Brussels, at the Hôtel Steigenberger Wiltcher’s on 6th, June. This event will bring together the institutional investors’ community and private asset management players, as well as experts in public affairs and representatives from European institutions, in order to decrypt, together, the challenges relating to new regulations in Europe.

L’AGEFI will organise, between 8:00am and 2:30pm, an opening conference followed by four debates covering changes in European governance and the consequences of Brexit, the reform of the pension system, the financing of the real economy, and the increasing acknowledgement of sustainable development factors in investments. The morning of debate will be followed by drinks and a buffet lunch.
