Succeed in a changing world where will we find growth?
Julius Baer today hosts the third investment conference in its Next Generation series. The conference provides clients and investors with first-hand insights from renowned experts on growth in challenging times, discussing if and how sustainable growth can be achieved despite an environment of uncertainty.
Fast-growing economies are primary targets for those seeking new investment potential. The rise of the G20 as the premier forum for discussing global economic issues serves as a reminder that the shift of influence towards emerging markets is of extreme importance. In pursuit of sustainable growth, economies look at ways to reduce dependence on external demand, often developing technology-led sectors and high-value capabilities causing unprecedented shifts in the worlds business landscape. Julius Baers investment conference analyses these powerful changes and demonstrates investors how they can gain exposure to promising emerging markets.
CEO Boris Collardi said: With our Next Generation investment conferences we want to approach long-term themes head-on, with a view to engaging our clients in thoughtful analysis and constructive investment advice. I am convinced that todays conference will again outline fresh perspectives and provide out-of-the-box ideas, driven by a progressive and critical evaluation of their potential.
The panel of guest speakers comprises a number of leading figures: Sir Bob Geldof, singer and political activist, who will focus on the current situation in Africa; Brazilian entrepreneur Fernando de Arruda Botelho to cover the topic of Brazil, one of the most dynamic growth markets; Kai-Fu Lee, CEO Innovation Works and former President of Google China, who will discuss the potential of e-commerce in the worlds largest market, China.
Other speakers at the conference include Khaled al Khamissi, noted Egyptian author and film director, and Larry Jeddeloh, Chief Investment Officer of The Institutional Strategist (TIS) Group. Julius Baers speakers are CEO Boris Collardi; Yves-Robert Charrue, CEO Switzerland; Christian Gattiker, Head Research; Andreas Feller, Investment Advisory and Stefan Hofer, Emerging Market Equity Strategy.
