FINANZ’17 – «Creative Concepts»
This year marked the 19th time that the largest Swiss financial fair opened its doors – FINANZ’17 took place on 1st and 2nd February 2017 at the Kongresshaus in Zurich. Over 100 exhibitors and numerous financial experts from Switzerland and abroad presented new trends in the funds and structured products industry as well as in real estate investments and attracted around 6300 visitors.
Under the trade fair motto «Creative Concepts», recipes were presented with which one can safe-guard or augment one’s assets in times of low or even negative interest rates and challenging mar-kets. The numerous specialist lectures and round-table discussions – including on structured prod-ucts – also attracted interest. SSPA Chairman Georg von Wattenwyl took part in the panel “Active versus Passive”, and set out the potential and the ways in which structured products can be de-ployed. The brand-new «SP Portfolio Optimizer» was presented to the public at the open forum «How structured products enhance your portfolio – test the new SSPA app!». This was available for live-testing directly alongside the SSPA stand. The open forums «Structured Products as Portfolio Component» and «Ask the Structured Product Experts» provided additional opportunities to obtain information – along with personal discussions with experts at the SSPA stand.
As Zurich’s Kongresshaus will be closing its doors this summer for a major three-year conversion and renovation, FINANZ’18 will take place in the new “Halle 622” in Zurich-Oerlikon from 31 January to 1 February 2018.
