Funds to Watch Geneva

Europe's fund selectors deserve access to new ideas to deal with the outcomes of the ‘new normal' that has plagued markets for the past decade - in areas such as developed market sovereign debt, where yields have been squeezed to zero or even negative in real terms - as well as position clients to take best advantage of what will hopefully be continued global economic recovery.

With this in mind we are delighted to announce the inaugural Funds to Watch event which will provide a platform for sponsors to showcase up and coming or evolving funds and managers.

Set to take place over three days, the event will offer a mix of styles - plenary sessions and boardroom sessions - for speakers to share their outlooks on asset classes and strategies. There will also be ample networking opportunities thanks to our on demand, one to one, networking meetings - enabling fund selector delegates and speakers to continue the dialogue after the formal sessions are done.

The event  will take place from 21st - 23rd April at the InterContinental in Geneva and will provide the opportunity for a maximum of 8 fund managers to present to, and network with, 50 fund selectors from across Europe.

This event is working towards the International Standard ISO 20121 and follows guidance set out by the Sustainable Event Alliance (SEA)
