EUROPE - Deutsche Asset Management (DeAM) will be hosting a series of investment conferences in Europe during October 2001.
Targeting key clients and prospects, the event entitled ‘Investing with Insight’, will provide European institutional investors with the opportunity to meet DeAM’s investment specialists from all around the world.
During the sessions, DeAM will discuss the strategic issues and trends shaping pension funds and investment decisions in European and global markets, and demonstrate why the need for innovative ideas and flexible solutions has never been greater.
Together the conferences form a roadshow, which will visit six key European financial centres throughout October.
