7th Investment Data & Technology Summit

18 August 2022

The Fullerton Hotel Sydney

Australia’s largest, most well-attended and regarded ‘Investment Data & Technology Summit’ returns in 2022 for its 7th annual event, held in-person in Sydney on August 18.

The ​purpose of the event is to discuss how institutions can manage the evolving role of data and technology in investment management. It examines both front office data and technology use cases and considerations, as well as organisational themes such as data governance, technology architecture and business efficiency.

Launched in 2016, the ‘IDT Summit’ is firmly established in the ​calendar and attended by over 150 C-level and senior executives from key asset managers, insurers and large asset owner organisations each year. It is the largest independent forum of its type for the Australian investment industry, and offers a variety of international and local speaking talent along with unrivalled peer discussion and opportunities for idea generation.

**New for 2022** is the inclusion ​of Fund Business’ leading ‘Risk and Performance Summit’ 4th annual event as a separate conference stream alongside the IDT Summit. This will offer expanded content, along with a bigger joint networking area – in short a larger forum and expo, catering to both the consumers and managers of investment data and technology.

PLEASE NOTE: attendance is restricted to investment management firms only.
