Finanz’20 – “Traditional values in a digital world”
The 22nd instalment of Switzerland’s biggest financial fair closed its doors on 22 January. With over 170 national and international exhibitors and 3800 visitors, the fair attracted the Swiss financial sector with various panel discussions and key note speeches on modern money market
theory, sustainable investments, the investment environment for pension funds, digitalisation and new technologies within the financial world. A rise of 20% relative to the previous year, and a new record.
Asset managers, private bankers, real estate investors as well as representatives of family offices and pension funds not only sought personal exchanges with the exhibitors, but also actively attended the varied supporting programme. A large number of round table discussions, specialist panels and expert talks were held under the fair’s motto “Traditional values in a digital world”. The SSPA also made an active contribution to the supporting programme with two panels: During the specialist panel chaired by André Buck (SIX) “How can a portfolio be optimised by structured products?”, Irene Brunner (BNP Paribas), Giuseppe Caltabiano (UBP), Manuel Dürr (Leonteq) and Curdin Summermatter (ZKB) discussed attractive deployment opportunities for generating returns. Dominique Böhler (Société Générale), Heiko Geiger (Vontobel), Raimund Müller (UBS) and Sven Württemberger (DWS) debated whether ETFs and structured products should be seen as rivals or instead more as ideal complements to each other. Conclusion: it’s all in the mix, and as a preventive measure in case the economy slows. The SSPA distributed bicycle lamps and tasty brain food amongst visitors to the fair.
Finanz’21 and Immo’21 are set to be staged in the new venue of Hall 550 in Zürich Oerlikon.
