Global Events

Credit Suisse Salon

Credit Suisse Salon

A window to global challenges: Credit Suisse has been hosting the Credit Suisse Salon, a by-invitation-only thought leadership platform for our key clients, private investors, business leaders and entrepreneurs from around the globe, since 2008. The aim of this initiative is to bring together global opinion leaders and our select audience to discuss pressing issues in the current economic, political and social landscape. The Credit Suisse Salon usually takes place twice a year and is a rather intimate circle hosting. We have had the privilege of welcoming distinguished leaders to the Salon, including former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, Professor Muhammad Yunus, General Colin Powell, Mr. Mohamed ElBaradei, Dr. Henry Kissinger, Mr. Tony Blair, Dr. Ben Bernanke, and just recently Mr. Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan. 

Private Innovation Circle – PIC

Private Innovation Circle – PIC 

The Private Innovation Circle is an expression of our common belief that innovation is a great lever to transform the world, that economic value can be unlocked anywhere and that effective networks can be enabled across countries, regions and corporations. The Circle gives leading global innovators and entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their ventures both in a panel discussion and in an open marketplace-style fair to globally active successful individuals. 

Young Investor Programs

Young Investor Programs 

The Young Investor Program is an exclusive six-day education program offered by Credit Suisse to its UHNWI clients’ sons and daughters in the age range of 20 to 30 years. Credit Suisse developed the course together with professors of the University of St. Gallen in 2003. The program aims to provide a foundation of knowledge and understanding of the financial markets and to give a thorough grounding in the key concepts of wealth management. It also aims to help next generation members who are about to assume an important investment responsibility to understand how these concepts are best applied in a practical situation. Teaching techniques are varied; they consist of a combination of lectures, discussions, group exercises and case studies, and an investment game. The 2015 Young Investor Programs will take place from August 2–8 in Zurich and from August 23–28 in London.
