Buy-Side Insight: Getting on the Radar Screen*
Tue - Jun, 5 | 1:45 pm - 3:00 pm
Location: 6A (Convention Center Level 6)

What makes a buy-side investor decide to buy, sell, or short your stock? The answer may not be as obvious as you think. Institutional investors consider a wide range of factors when making investment decisions including portfolio balance, trading costs, and internal risk benchmarks. Panelists from a group of leading buy-side firms representing a cross section of disciplines will offer insight regarding how and why they select certain stocks.

To learn more about how technical investors make informed investment decisions, attend the Technical Investing session.
