Buy Side Perspectives in a Pandemic
Join us as our panel of experts examine how COVID-19 has impacted the Canadian hedge fund industry, and how it has adapted. What headwinds has the pandemic created for the industry, and what opportunities have opened up? Our panelists will deliberate whether they have seen changes to stock loan as a result of the pandemic, and how they think the industry has had to pivot towards any changes.

We look forward to having you join us on November 5th.
