We are looking forward to the Treasury Investment Managers’ Peer Group (TIMPG) Fall Meeting on October 24-25, 2012, where members will check in with one another on how they’re dealing with the ongoing volatility and risk concerns around geographies, investments and institutions.
The NeuGroup is pleased to welcome back DB Advisors as the meeting sponsor. Operating then under the Deutsche Asset Management name, they sponsored the group’s very first meeting in September 2004. This fall’s meeting is hosted by first-time host VMware.
Highlights on the agenda include:
- Repos and covered bonds in-depth. A deep dive into the specific structures, benefits and risks associated with repurchase agreements and covered bonds.
- Tagging along with asset manager on EM trip. In a commentary on the risks of sovereign debt and perhaps a bit of mistrust with asset managers, members will hear a report from a member, whose assistant treasurer recently accompanied an asset manager to Turkey to learn first-hand how they perform credit analysis on emerging market sovereign debt.
- Asset allocation update. The standing topic of asset allocation, where members review their changes in thinking and strategy since the last meeting.
- “The Really Big Concerns.” DB Advisors will share their views on such macro events as the US elections, the fiscal cliff, and tensions in Asia and the Middle East.
As usual, the meeting should prove to be a robust exchange of knowledge between some of the most sophisticated corporate cash investors in the country.The Treasury Investment Managers’ Peer Group is the NeuGroup for investment managers at cash-rich MNCs. It includes senior treasury professionals from 30 companies with oversight responsibilities for treasury investment management at corporates with at least $2.5bn in excess cash. The TIMPG is an invitation-only membership group that meets twice per year to exchange knowledge in person and anytime on the NeuGroup Exchange.
