Between them they share trillions in assets under management – so what can they tell us about the impact of the covid-19 epidemic on their securities operations?

In the morning plenary of the full-day PostTrade 360° Web Summit – coming Wednesday, 3 June – these investment management heavyweights will gather for a panel discussion on the medium-term effects on buy-side operations:
Arne Martin Moen, Chief Operating Officer, Storebrand Asset Management
Matthias Liermann, Chief Operating Officer EMEA, DWS
Wouter Peters, Chief Operating Officer, Aegon Asset Management
Moderator will be Bastiaan Aalders, Director, Alpha FMC.

Any business newspaper has given an impression of what challenges asset managers have been under: market stress putting the NAV setting processes to the test, question marks around liquidity (with assets in the market even being gated from transactions), assets have seen price falls and volatility that have triggered margin calls, credit markets have shaken and third-party risks have called for attention … all to be handled operationally by staff that is increasingly calling in via laptops from home, secure or not …


Were we ready? And what will we need to look at further as we go forward?
