Data Minds Panel - July 18, 2024

Data Minds - Dissecting Data in Shifting H2 Global Markets

After a first half of the year which at times seemed uncertain, H2 kicks off with the US economy and US large cap equities remaining healthy despite persistent headwinds. Now that markets showed they can withstand a correction from one of the most heavily weighted stocks (NVDA) and it seems more probable that interest rate cuts will take place later this year, how can investment professionals use data to take advantage of the so-called soft landing?

In this Data Minds panel, capital markets experts will weigh in on the following topics:

  • Global trading and risk outlook for H2 2024 and how to leverage the right data
  • Average sector correlations and how it affects market volatility
  • Increase in actively managed ETFs and how it impacts the sector's risk profile and affects data usage
  • AI data use cases for investors
  • US general election impact on markets
