This conference, the first to be hosted by ISITC Europe this year, will follow the topic of Outsourcing arrangements in the Asset Management Sector - Risks and Rewards.

Graeme Austin, chief executive of ISITC Europe, commented: “Following the stimulating and invigorating annual conference and the recent surge in membership, I am delighted that ISITC Europe is once again at the centre of the conversation on so many important issues. The quarterly session should be a very informative and thought provoking event for all those that attend.”
