The 12th edition of Shorex Geneva gathered last week 322 Swiss and European professional investors, family offices, independent asset managers and fund buyers. The event took place on 4th December at the Grand Hotel Kempinski Geneva.
The programme covered this year European equities, international financial centres including Liechtenstein and Dubai, Smart beta Indices, high yield bonds, and the new regulations and compliance for Swiss wealth managers (FINMA, FATCA, AIFMD, LPCC, etc.).
The forum also featured a series of investment strategy roundtables moderated by fund managers and covering smart ETFs and floating rate bond ETFs, water strategy, investment in the Russian financial market and investment in Dublin real estate.
The Forum was supported by the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre, Factset, BNP Paribas Investment Partners, AllianceBernstein, Invesco PowerShares, Neptune Investment Management, Robeco, Argonaut Capital Partners, Comgest and many others.
The event was also marked by its new partnership with L’AGEFI, Swiss leading financial publication. L’AGEFI, now the event lead media sponsor, took over from Le Temps who had been the media partner of the event since its launch in 2002.
The Shorex Wealth Management Forum Geneva is now the longest standing B2B wealth management event in Switzerland. Co-founder of Shorex Philippe Gelin said: "The event showed that Switzerland is holding to its position as a leading centre for wealth management excellence while reinforcing its regulations and compliance requirements for fund managers, banks and independent asset managers. The event was very successful with well attended presentation and roundtables by high calibre professional investors and family offices. I am also very pleased with our new media partnership with L’AGEFI and look forward to working with them on our Geneva event for years to come.”
The next Shorex Geneva will be held on 3rd December 2014. The event will also be held next year in major European cities including London, Paris and Moscow.
