Introducing Vidrio's "Coffee and a Conversation" Series

We are pleased to introduce Vidrio’s new thought leadership series: Coffee and a Conversation, and to invite you to join us every quarter for brief, but informative discussions about the unique challenges and opportunities of allocators to external managers.

As the only fully integrated front- to middle-office investment management solution for multi-asset class institutional allocators, the Vidrio team has a unique vantage point. via our ecosystem of asset allocators, fund managers and industry partners. We find great value in our community and hearing how others are finding new approaches for operating in the moment, while planning for future unknowns.

While we’d of course prefer the benefit of  in-person networking at industry conferences and roundtables, we thought the next best thing would be to create some on-camera camaraderie by inviting the market to grab a cup of coffee and join the Vidrio team in a series of Zoom conversations across a range of timely topics.

Our inaugural conversation, Zoom Diligence: Creating a Nexus of Due Diligence in the Age of Remote Meetings, was held on Tuesday, November 24. The next conversation will be scheduled in early 2021. 

Your participation is always appreciated and we welcome your ideas for future topics and guest speakers. Please email info@vidrio.com to learn more about the series and to submit your suggestions for future conversations.
