Following the success of our first event in this WBS-Detica City Series held in November last year, we are very excited to present our second seminar with a Financial Services theme.
Simon Finnie, Principal Consultant at Detica and a WBS alumnus (EXMBA 99-03) will be hosting this event at Detica's London offices. Dimitris Vougiouklis, will be speaking on behalf of the Detica group with a talk entitled Unravelling Asset Management
Provide a 30,000 feet overview of the Asset Management landscape; including drivers for change, issues & challenges facing the industry today and some key themes across the industry participants. We will also make an attempt to provide our thought leadership on how derivative products are utilised by asset managers & how the landscape has emerged in the post-trade client service needs of the market players.
Dimitris Vougiouklis has over 6 years experience in financial markets. He has predominantly focused as Project & PMO manager on Business & IT change initiatives within global investment banks. Dimitris has previously worked on assignments and held positions at Merrill Lynch, ABN Amro, HSBC and Credit Suisse.

We are also very pleased to welcome WBS alumnus (DLMBA 85-9), Guy Fraser-Sampson who will be speaking on Multi Asset Class Investment Strategy
In recent years Guy has developed his abiding interest in investment strategy, portfolio theory and asset allocation, and become recognised as an expert and thought leader in the area, particularly in so far is pension funds are concerned. He also, in the course of two and a half years' research for his first book, became an expert on so-called alternative assets generally, and has written and lectured widely on how these might be accommodated into Multi Asset Class products and portfolios.
