Highlights from Credit Suisse Global Megatrends Conference 2018
The sixth Credit Suisse Global Megatrends Conference took place on April 18, 2018 and we had the privilege of hosting close to 600 guests at this Private Banking APAC flagship event. 

At the conference, attendees heard from 14 internationally recognized opinion leaders, sector specialists and industry experts on fundamental supertrends that are expected to impact global markets.

The conference focused on Supertrends themes consisting of: The Age Of Sci-Fi & Rise Of Artificial Intelligence,  Technology At The Service Of Humans – What Does It Mean For Investors, When Millennials Rule and The Silver Economy – Investing For Population Aging.

Credit Suisse’s Supertrends are investment themes that link long-term trends between today’s major developments and investors’ profile. Long-term trends such as technology are expected to dominate in the coming years. Two sizeable demographic groups are also the focus for this year as the consumption needs for each group are specific, substantive and momentous.

Overall, participants gained valuable insights on what these key developments and Megatrend themes meant in practical terms to investors as well as benefitted from the insights shared by 14 internationally known speakers in their respective fields.
