Live conferences

Credit Suisse Asset Management

Quarterly Virtual Conference

Join us for the next live conference on July 5, 2022, from 14:00 to 15:45 CET, where we will give a general investment outlook across regions and asset classes and discuss the significance of sustainable finance in protecting natural resources and accelerating the world’s transition to a low-carbon economy.

Making investment decisions in the current highly volatile and uncertain environment is a challenging task since expectations of slower economic growth, persistently high inflation, monetary policy tightening, and the geopolitical situation are weighing on investors’ minds.

However, as investment returns are predominantly driven by long-term trends, this could, in fact, be a good moment to consider long-term trends that will shape the economic landscape for years to come.

The last decade has seen unprecedented growth in sustainable and impact investing. This has been driven in part by the fact that solutions to the most pressing environmental and societal challenges, as defined by the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals framework, are needed urgently, which requires engaging private capital. However, it has also been driven by an increasing recognition that tackling systemic challenges creates exciting investment opportunities and leads to the generation of attractive returns.

At the conference, we will provide a market overview and outlook and we will also dive deep on sustainability and compelling investment opportunities emerging as a result of efforts to drive the world toward sustainable and inclusive growth.
