Full Overview

It is a very interesting time of change and innovation for the European private banking, asset and wealth management industries. Political shocks such as Brexit, digital transformations and evolving priorities of institutional and HNWI investors as ESG, climate change and passive strategies increasingly dominate asset allocation strategies all have huge implications and create a new era for the entire industry.  

This packed one day, high level summit will see our distinguished panel of C suite speakers from Private Banks, Asset Managers, Institutional Investors and Family Offices debate these key issues during keynote presentations, on stage interviews and panel discussions. Discussion points will include; how far AI can truly go in the private banking sector, the yin and yang of passive and active investing, Britain’s role post Brexit, opportunities in sustainable long-term investing, succession planning, healthcare investment via private equity and venture capital and the return of the emerging markets as they expand into the fixed income market.

    Emerging markets are once again fuelling growth, especially in areas such as technology and innovation, with China and India leading growth, but some less high profile markets, including Romania, Turkey and Indonesia also having much to offer. Opportunities in Asia are embracing not just equities but also fixed income for the first time, with healthy returns from Chinese and ASEAN bonds. While many Asian investors have diversified internationally to reflect an increasingly diversified world, private banks and asset managers believe the key opportunities are now on their doorstep in 2018 and beyond.
