The second round of the cycling Six Day Series is due to start in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam tomorrow ©Six Day Series

The second round of the cycling Six Day Series is due to start in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam tomorrow with 13 pairs competing to qualify for the grand finale in Mallorca next year.

Ten of the pairings heading to The Netherlands who also competed in the first stage of the competition in London will be aiming to extend their points total ahead of the final Series rounds in Berlin in Germany and the Danish capital of Copenhagen.

The series intends to give six day racing a “21st Century makeover”, with a television-friendly format set to feature international teams of riders across multiple events during the six days.

The top 12 male and female riders throughout the series will qualify for a one night final event, which will take place in Palma, Mallorca.

The Amsterdam Velodrome will then host action from December 6 to 11, before the series heads to Berlin Velodrome between January 19 and 24.

Copenhagen’s Ballerup Super Arena will hold the fourth competition from January 26 to 31, prior to the season climax in Mallorca on March 17.

The Dutch pair of Niki Terpstra and Raymond Kreder are one of four home duos taking to the track in Amsterdam this week.

Terpstra won Six Day Amsterdam in 2014 alongside compatriot Yoeri Havik who will also be in action this week with Wim Stroetinga.

The event will almost be a home fixture for Havik.

The 25-year-old hails from Zaandam, just 15 kilometres outside the Dutch capital, and trains at the Velodrome Amsterdam several times a week.

Havik will also be making an emotional return to the sport following his grandfather’s recent heart attack.

Meanwhile, Andy Tennant and Chris Latham are the sole Great Britain representatives.

Latham finished second at Six Day London in 2015, riding with fellow young Brit Ollie Wood, while Tennant made his Six Day debut just six weeks ago, in the English capital.

The pair finished tenth in London, nine laps down on the winners, and suffered due to Latham’s illness on day three, but racked up wins in the team elimination, longest lap and derny races to boost their confidence for the rest of the competition.

Created by the Madison Sports Group, the series will be covered live on Eurosport and highlights will also be broadcast on Sky Sports in the United Kingdom.

A women’s omnium series will run across the duration of the series, in addition to sprint competitions.

The implications of Brexit will be just one of several key topics to be discussed at next year’s sixth edition of ABN AMRO Clearing’s annual Amsterdam Investor Forum, to be held on the 7 and 8 March, 2017. 

“The Forum will be taking place just a few weeks before the UK Government plans to trigger Article 50 to begin the process of formally leaving the European Union so it will be an interesting period,” comments Gildas Le Treut (pictured), Global Director Prime, ABN AMRO Clearing. 

The most recent Forum, hosted at the Dutch bank’s headquarters on 17 February 2016, was the biggest it had produced, with approximately 300 attendees, of whom 42 per cent were institutional investors and FoHFs, 40 per cent were hedge fund managers, and 18 per cent were specialists including lawyers, consultants, and other service providers that are part of ABN AMRO Clearing’s network. 

“We ended up with 300 registrations even though the auditorium can only hold 255. It was a great success and we were very pleased. We did think about moving the event into a bigger venue but people go to many events at hotels. I like the fact that we get to host it in our headquarters. For ABN AMRO that is important. Also, we would rather keep the event limited in terms of registration numbers and have quality rather than quantity people in attendance,” outlines Le Treut.

Alongside Brexit: The new reality for investment managers, next year’s Forum will cover issues including the new macro landscape, artificial intelligence, and the future of the asset management industry. What makes the Forum so popular is the amount of active discussion and interaction between delegates and panelists, both during chaired sessions and session breaks. 

This gives fund managers and investors the opportunity to network and build relationships in a constructive way. 

“It has been a challenging year and a tough period for the hedge fund industry,” says Le Treut, discussing the event framework. “If you look at the macroeconomics of political shifts such as the Brexit vote and now the Trump presidential victory this will affect the fund industry: what will be the effect of the Trump victory on regulation, for example? Will there be a change in regulation? With respect to Brexit, what is the current effect it is having on the euro and what might be the future effect? 

“This is what the Forum is all about; sharing specialist views on how these issues are impacting the alternative funds industry. We will have the likes of AIMA and various regulators on panels sharing their views.”

Le Treut believes that part of the reason for the Forum’s appeal within the alternatives industry is precisely because there is a real opportunity to do quality networking. It is also helped by the fact that there is a genuinely informal atmosphere, which helps people relax and speak more candidly with their peers.

“We cover detailed industry topics and I do believe the quality of the panels is high. People like to come and interact with the panelists throughout the day. The fact that it is in early 2017 means people can share their views on the previous year and on new trends that are likely to emerge for the year ahead,” says Le Treut.

Within the hedge fund industry in particular, poor performance has led to continued fee pressure from investors. Investors do not want to pay for beta, they want demonstrable alpha. This is leading to new trends in the market, new ways to harvest risk premia, new developments in artificial intelligence and machine learning strategies. 

“We will touch upon artificial intelligence in the Forum. Is it just marketing, for example? Are managers just using the term in their marketing because it sounds good? There is always a man behind the model. You always need a discretionary element so I am expecting an interesting debate on this issue,” comments Le Treut. He adds:

“We always want a seasoned expert speaking at the Forum and, importantly, someone completely outside the industry. Next March we will have Oliver Rees delivering a keynote speech ( Oliver is a Cambridge Psychology graduate and one of the most innovative people in cybersecurity. By combining psychology with cybersecurity, he is changing the landscape.”

One central feature of the Forum that always attracts attention is the ‘AIF Factor’. This gives five hedge fund managers three minutes to pitch to a panel of judges why their fund should be considered by investors. London-based Devet Capital, a systematic market neutral strategy, was the winner back in February.

The intended aim of each Amsterdam Investor Forum is to encourage contrarian views to be shared and challenged. No single panel is ever in broad agreement.  

“This is how we construct the panels, by having different points of view and a lot of debate with the audience. That is part of the DNA of the Forum; the interaction with the audience and strong views being shared among industry experts. 

“This is not a capital introduction event. It’s a networking event of industry specialists and we want this industry to grow and for people to build closer relationships,” concludes Le Treut.

The launch edition of Intertraffic Mexico, the latest addition in the global portfolio of Intertraffic events, attracted a grand total of 4,137 attendees from 45 countries across the globe, including 19 from the Americas. The event exceeded everyone’s expectations and exhibitors and visitors alike agreed that the Intertraffic show could not have come at a better time. National and international companies offered solutions to the significant traffic challenges Mexico is facing. Three bustling show days complemented with a dedicated conference programme made for an engaging and educational first edition in Mexico. Intertraffic Mexico is organised by RAI Amsterdam and E.J. Krause and took place from 16 to 18 November in Centro Citibanamex, Mexico City.

Intertraffic is the global network platform for innovation in mobility and traffic technology, where the industry can share knowledge and where collaboration is encouraged between governments, research institutes and private companies in order to achieve mobility that is efficient and healthy for citizens. Growing cities demand more intelligent transportation systems and infrastructure, and Intertraffic Mexico can help change the way mobility is seen,” said Richard Butter, Exhibition Director of Intertraffic Worldwide Events at RAI Amsterdam. “I am thrilled with the quantity and quality of attendees for a new launch. We knew the Mexican market was in need of an Intertraffic event. However, we hadn’t expected to welcome a grand total of 4,137 professionals from 45 countries. The 140 exhibitors from 23 countries who took part in this inaugural edition have had a great head start to do business in Mexico and the region.”

According to Paul St. Amour, Vice President of E.J. Krause Latin America, Intertraffic Mexico was one of the most successful show launches he has seen in the last 20 years. “Not only did the number of attendees exceed our expectations, the actual impression the event made on our exhibitors goes to show in the direct rebookings for 2017. Exhibitors responded with “tremendous show”, “a great opportunity to meet different players from all over Latin America” and “many business opportunities”. All the positive vibes resulted in an on the spot re-booking of 108% during show hours which is unheard of. It speaks for itself we will be moving to a larger hall next year.”

The dedicated conference program included 48 presentations given by local and international experts. During her presentation, Laura Ballesteros, Deputy Secretary of Planning for Mexico City’s Ministry of Mobility, said that Intertraffic’s importance lies in that it “brings together all the actors that are making changes in cities, in a diverse and impartial way, and at the same time providing a space to discuss all the issues we are working on. The Private Sector, Civil Society and Government need to work together to solve mobility issues, and this is the right time of year to do it.”

From the exhibitors of Intertraffic Mexico 2016:

Francisco Romero, CEO of Punto Rojo, said he sees the event having “great potential, because this year, we had very good attendance, people were very interested and I was able to show my product to key areas of government and the construction industry. I think this is an event you’ll have to come back to. In fact, we’ve already reserved a stand seven times larger than this year’s.” “The most important brands and teams in the world are participating,” said Fernando Meléndez, Central Director of Chip Coin Parking Systems. He added that the event was “well organized and had a large number of visitors from all over the world, which is very important so that each year has a better turn out. We had visitors on our stand from South America, Australia and Europe, who asked about the products we offer.”

Ib Neustrup Simonsen, President of Borum (Denmark) commented it was a tremendous show for them with lots of knowledgeable visitors. Swarco’s (Austria) Head of Corp. Communication Marketing Richard Neumann added “A great start for Intertraffic Mexico and us as exhibitors as we met high quality contacts with good business prospects for the coming months.” Walter Arenas, Director of International Sales Latam Africa from Waterblasting Technologies (USA) was pleasantly surprised with the quality attendance and caliber of the show and assured they will be back next year!

Next edition

Intertraffic Mexico will return annually to Mexico City. The next edition allows for 20% expansion and is set for 15-17 November 2017. Over 80% of the expanded show floor has already been rebooked which demonstrates the great business potential in mobility issues, along with the Private Sector’s interest in investing in Latin America.

Powerful partnership

Intertraffic Mexico is organized by RAI Amsterdam and E.J. Krause de México, with the support of an extensive network of offices and professionals worldwide. The cooperation as partners started with the successful launch edition of Aquatech Mexico earlier in October. Intertraffic Mexico is now the second joint production that got off to a flying start.
