Live conferences

Credit Suisse Asset Management

Quarterly Virtual Conference

We invite you to make time for the Credit Suisse Asset Management Virtual Conference on September 22, 2021, from 14:00-16:00 CET. Together, we will explore ways to profit from China's growth and stature. Our top experts will highlight some of the themes and opportunities they are pursuing, and a key-note address will examine the salient geopolitical issues around China's continued rise.

China: second biggest economy in the world and home to a fifth of humanity. After COVID-19, the country shows a renewed dynamism and is generating rapid growth. As a regional powerhouse, it is pulling all of Asia along an impressive growth trajectory. And on a policy front, the country systematically seeks to create and capture opportunities at the leading edge of finance and technology.

Its leadership in green tech such as electric vehicles and solar panels as well as smartphones and networks undergirds a renewed industrial and consumer confidence. This reverberates through the entire economy and leads to increased spending in consumption, leisure, tourism and adjacent segments.

All this makes for a vibrant investment landscape, rife with opportunity. And yet, foreign engagement remains low – as illustrated, for example, in extraordinary statistics such as the fact that, in the world's second-biggest bond market, foreign participation remains below 3%.

We look forward to your participation.
