Thank you and see you next year in Cairo!

IFTA Conference 2018

Navigating Through Time & Volatility

Thank you! Terima Kasih!

See you at IFTA Conference 2019 Cairo!

IFTA 31st Annual Conference will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, where commerce, culture and colour, converge, on Friday 26 – Sunday 28 October 2018.

The theme of the conference, “Navigating Through Time & Volatility” is about exploring and tinkering with ideas on how trading & investing has evolved from the perspective of “time”. Various techniques, methodologies, ideas, systematic trading systems, adaptation on momentum investing and more will be presented during the conference. We believe this world-class conference will open up to a new revolution in the financial markets particularly in the Asia Pacific region.

We expect the conference to be attended by 350 professionals, from advisors, fund buyers, asset managers, hedge fund managers, analysts, private bankers and professional traders, not only from Europe but also from the Americas and Asian countries.

The delegates will be drawn from all IFTA societies from around the world. You will have the opportunity of being involved in an exciting line-up of eminent speakers and panel sessions and to see, hear and meet with acknowledged cutting-edge speakers, as well as to network with each other.
