Securing Data Talent: Strategies for Selling the Investment Management Story

Webinar • September 26, 2018 • 1:00 PM ET

With an increasingly competitive landscape for recruiting talent in the data and analytics sector, investment management firms must re-tell the financial services story, becoming more strategic in their outreach. Here to shed light on the challenge are two industry experts who offer professional recruiting and academic perspectives.

Pulling from nearly two decades’ experience in financial services and a niche focus was on artificial intelligence, data science and machine learning, Korn Ferry’s Deepali Vyas will share industry trends; insight on building effective team structure; and strategies around the successful placement of new and rising data talent.

Complementing her perspective is that of Abbass Sharif who heads up the nation’s #1 Master of Science in Business Analytics program, as ranked by The Financial Engineer. As program director with expertise in the field of statistical computing and data visualization, Abbass will share what students in his program and others like it are learning, and how this affects their expectations for post-graduate employment. Also highlighting skillsets and areas of specialization, participants will learn how to leverage new talent’s specialized skills, identifying new opportunities for engagement before and after graduation.
