Last Friday, as a finance major, it was an honor to attend the eighth annual MIT Sloan Investment Management Conference. The distinguished keynote speakers and expert panelists shared their views on key trends and future developments in their asset classes and investment processes. Not only did I learn from the keynotes speaker’s presentation, but I also had an opportunity to talk to the CEO co-founder of some finance service companies.
The conference started at 9 a.m. with a nice breakfast, during which I got to know other attendees. I had a great conversation with the woman sitting next to me whose name was Xiaoxiao Wang. I later found out she was the vice president of MSCI. I introduced myself then asked her a lot of questions about her work, her company, and things related to my future job. She was really nice and told me that MSCI is an international company that has an office in China. I was so happy to hear about that, and then I asked more details about the latest Chinese Financial market trends.
I talked to Lo afterward and asked him some questions about wealth management in relation to my current internship. He not only explained it to me but also gave me his email in case I wanted to discuss further questions with him.
