deep dive 2020

29th October 2020


Join Neudata — in partnership with Morgan Stanley — for an 80-minute Deep Dive event into the healthcare datasets that are proving most useful for asset managers in the wake of COVID-19.

This event is the fourth in a monthly series of thematic Deep Dives with Morgan Stanley.
