MSCI Middle East Research Conference

As Market Classification sheds a spotlight on regional asset and wealth managers readying themselves for international fund flows, the choice of how to offer this market exposure continues to grow through Factor Investing. With Factor Investing becoming more mainstream, the importance of capacity, transparency and consistency in factor definitions between risk and performance is viewed equally as important as the investment decision and direction itself.

Join MSCI’s Dubai team for a one-day conference where Senior Executives from MSCI's Global Research, Index and Analytics teams come together to discuss the evolving trends in Factor Investing and perspectives on market classification. We will also cover a practical example of a Factor Index being made available as a Fund Strategy by a regional asset manager, in the special interview segment.
