The FUND EXPERTS FORUM – an investment conference for private wealth managers organized by Forum Executive and fundinfo – took place in Rüschlikon on 11 and 12 April 2013. Held under the motto “BEYOND UNCERTAINTY”, the conference was moderated by Reto Brennwald of Swiss television SF1.
On day one, the event began with interesting panel discussions with Jörg Asmussen, Elizabeth Corley, Oswald Grübel, Prof. Dr. Beatrice Weder di Mauro and Czech economist and bestseller Prof. Tomas Sedlacek on the current debt crisis and the repercussions for banks and the asset management industry. The panel discussions were chaired by Mark Dittli (editor-in-chief of the Swiss newspaper Finanz und Wirtschaft) and Dr. Rainer Hank (head of the business and finance section of the Sunday edition of the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine). After dinner, attendees had the opportunity to network with one another.
On day two, the conference continued with a presentation on the topic of “trust” by Dr. David Bosshart, CEO of the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute (GDI). The presentation was followed by group discussions among the 200 participants on specific investment themes with 15 high-calibre portfolio managers in the inspiring setting of the GDI in Rüschlikon. To end the conference on a more relaxed note, Stephen Attenborough (commercial director of Virgin Galactic) presented Richard Branson’s current commercial space tourism project.
