A trip around the world

Our speakers are at home all over the world. This is the starting point of a journey to discover the most important Growth Engines for your investments.

They will arrive in Zurich equipped with the specialised knowledge necessary for the occasion. All of them are renowned international finance experts, starting with our chief economist, John Greenwood OBE, who will again travel from our european headquarter in Henley-on-Thames, England, to bring you an informed outlook for 2020.

London, Frankfurt, Cambridge, New York: Other experts from these major cities will accompany you on a journey to the Growth Engines real estate business, sustainable ETFs, factor investing and global emerging markets.

Our trip concludes in Beijing, with Haiyan Wang, co-founder of the China India Institute, accompanying us along the way. She and Kurt Haerri, who works for Schindler China and is a board member at the Swiss-Chinese Chamber of Commerce, will speak about China as the Growth Engine of superlatives – and about the opportunities arising for Swiss investors.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Zurich!

    ”The length of the presentations was absolutely ideal: all the most important topics in a nutshell.“
    ”The Belt & Road Initiative has given me plenty to think about.“
