New York — With the U.S. presidential election determining who will lead the country for the next four years just two days prior and as the global financial community begins to take stock of how it will adjust its strategies going forward, Bloomberg LINK will convene the smartest portfolio managers and senior executives from top asset management firms at the second Bloomberg Portfolio Manager Mash-Up.

Throughout the full-day conference, which will take place at Location 05 in New York City on Thursday, November 8, 2012, speakers will discuss their views on the trends impacting markets and how the asset management industry is evolving. Among other topics, the outlook for interest rates, investing opportunities in Europe, how to address the slowdown in emerging markets, and what’s next for the $2.6 trillion money market fund industry will be debated.

“With the U.S. state and federal elections decided, the time is right to evaluate what lies ahead and debate strategies to best address the changes to come,” said Robert Bierman, head of Bloomberg LINK. “Those in attendance will leave with valuable insight on strategies and opportunities both here and abroad, in light of the current economic environment.”
