Credit Suisse Asset Management provides Access – Expertise – Link to its clients
The Credit Suisse Asset Management Investment Conference 2016 took place on June 2 and 3 in Andermatt, an idyllic setting in the Swiss Alps. Andermatt is close to the Gotthard Base Tunnel, the world's longest and deepest railway tunnel which opened the day before the conference. The innovative spirit of this engineering marvel could be felt over the two days.
The conference was hosted by Harald Réczek, Head of EMEA and Swiss Distribution for Asset Management, and was a flagship event for reaching out to key clients. The underlying theme was "Access, Expertise, Link":
- Access to CSAM's senior management and thought leaders, including Michael Strobaek, Global CIO & Head Asset Management Switzerland, and Jonathan Wilmot, Head of Macro Research
- Expertise through a series of talks and presentations from CS and external industry leaders
- Links to specialists and potential investment solutions across all traditional and alternative asset classes through a number of dedicated and structured workshops.
Key issues, such as the current low yield environment, thematic investing and the potential of China, were all addressed.
The conference connected guests, which included representatives from external asset managers, banks and family offices, with leading thought leaders, including The Rt Hon Sir John Major, KG, CH, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom 1990–1997 and Senior Advisor to Credit Suisse, as well as Andréa Maechler, member of the Swiss National Bank Governing Board, who delivered speeches on topics including geopolitical risk and monetary policy. Clients also had the opportunity to gain exclusive insights into the revelations of Mr Samih Sawiris, Chairman of Orascom Development Holding AG, who has a special vision to shape a new Andermatt.
Attendees had unprecedented access to powerful topics, influential solutions and actionable advice providing instrumental opportunity to connect with Credit Suisse Asset Management and its potential to answer key investment challenges.
