“Trends in Wealth Management” – International Structured Products Forum 2018 – 5 and 6 September at the Grand Hotel National in Lucerne
The sector’s traditional meeting will take place this year in Lucerne at the beginning of September. Together with SIX Structured Products Exchange AG, the SSPA is making increasing use of this event as a platform for exchanging opinions and holding discussions for the structured products industry. The ninth International Structured Products Forum is dedicated not just to general industry trends but also to current and future changes, challenges and opportunities, especially in the asset management field.
In his keynote speech under the motto “Trends in Wealth Management”, Frédéric Lamotte, Global Chief Investment Officer at Indosuez Wealth Management, will be addressing various aspects and trends in the field of asset management, and discussing “Quo vadis?” with Swiss and non-domestic representatives of the structured products sector. Global financial markets are of course an important trigger for developments in wealth management. Christian Gattiker, Head of Research at Julius Baer, will be outlining his assessment of the market in his speech. He will also discuss the effect of digitalisation, big data and artificial intelligence on markets and their development, and what impact the increased interaction of data and mental labour can have.
We are in the middle of far-reaching changes, perhaps even a revolution in the fintec sector – as Michael Hartweg, co-founder of Leonteq and Evolute, one of the highest-profile fintech specialists in Switzerland will be explaining, citing practical examples, providing insights into his extensive experience. The structured products sector is also responding to the new operating environment – we are looking forward to the insights and input of our structured products experts.
The proven and popular “Legal & Regulatory Workshop” on regulatory changes and challenges will again be held this year under the stewardship of SSPA Head Legal & Regulations Daniel Häberli. This year’s situation analysis will be looking “across the border” to Italy – ACEPI (Italian Association of Certificates and Investment Products) will be providing an update on “prodotti strutturati” and explaining the current state of the Italian market, along with its difficulties and particular attractions.
