Live conferences

Credit Suisse Asset Management

Quarterly Virtual Conference

Kick off the new investment year by joining our upcoming live conference on January 11, 2022, from 14:00-16:00 CET. We will present our investment outlook and its implication for asset allocation. The event will also focus on thematic equities, with the keynote showing the opportunities inherent in such an approach, and follow-up speakers talking about concrete solutions. As always, we will strive to keep the event concise and practical, with concrete implications for your investment strategy for 2022.

January is a traditional time to look ahead, in investing as elsewhere. Today, many interlocking factors are influencing markets. It has therefore become more important than ever to occasionally take a deep breath and concentrate on the issues that matter. Our outlook examines these issues and translates them into actual dos and don'ts for the new investment year.

Then we will present one particular approach that can be a guidepost in complex markets – thematic equity investing. Basing investment decisions on a theme identified as having great potential is a way of creating clarity and focus. Next to a general illumination of the advantages of thematic investing, we will also use two concrete examples to show how this works in the real world: The Environmental Impact theme, which seeks to participate in and drive the changes necessary to maintain a livable planet; and the Security theme, which takes advantage of the growing need for safety in both the cyber and physical spaces.

A final address on cyber security and a panel discussion will bring the event to a close. We look forward to your participation.
