Live conferences

Credit Suisse Asset Management

Quarterly Virtual Conference

Join the upcoming live conference on June 24, 2021, from 14:00-16:00 CET for a concise investment outlook across asset classes and global regions. We will look at the big picture, identifying trends and likely inflection points, and clearly work out the implications for your investment strategy for the rest of 2021 and going into 2022.

Then we will go deep on two crucial and interrelated investment topics for the coming months and years – the growing importance of emerging markets and the essential nature of sustainable investments. Investors cannot afford to ignore either of these, no matter their goals or the structures of their portfolios. We will look closely at the relative advantages of active and passive approaches to these themes and talk about the unique role ESG plays in finding solid investment opportunities – not only but especially in emerging markets.

As a distinct highlight, our keynote address will feature futurist Matthias Horx, who will look at sustainability from the point of view of someone playing the long game. A panel discussion on the post-COVID-19 investment landscape will bring the day to a close and include the opportunity to ask questions.
