Review of Zurich Stock Exchange Day
“Summertime and the livin’ is easy” – at least as far as the participation of the structured products association at Stock Exchange Day in Zurich is concerned. The second Zurich Stock Exchange Day retail investor trade fair took place at the World Trade Center – for the first time with a SSPA stand and SSPA representatives – who provided information on the use and function of structured products in a number of panel discussions.
The Zurich Stock Exchange Day lecture programme offered specialist lecture and information opportunities for every level of knowledge and the most diverse areas of interest. In addition to 22 other exhibitors, the SSPA took part with a dedicated stand, providing leaflets long with expert advice and information in discussions with visitors, while also making active use of the forums – and organised a panel on “investment opportunities with structured products in volatile markets”. Dominique Böhler, Commerzbank, assessed current trends and attractive opportunities presented by the active use of structured products in portfolios with Irene Brunner, BNP Paribas, and Giuseppe Caltabiano, UBP, in a discussion chaired by the Finanz und Wirtschaft journalist Philippe Béguelin.
