Join us for an early "Economic Outlook" event on 19th September, where we will discuss relevant geopolitical developments, key megatrends (including the rise of generative AI, the impact of aging demographics and lower carbon economies), the role of ASEAN in Asia and globally, central bank policies in the face of continuing inflationary pressures and supply chain constraints, investment strategies in the context of China's economic shortfall and the potential end of USD dominance, the global currencies landscape (eg the strong Swiss Franc), the resurgence of bonds, and the dominance of Big Seven tech stocks in the US stock market.

This will be a panel discussion co-moderated by Dr Daniel Brunner(Chair of the SwissCham Singapore Subcommittee Finance) and Bassam Salem(Chair of the SwissCham HK Committee Finance). Subject-matter experts Kelly Chia (Managing Director Senior Adviser at Julius Baer), Hartmut Issel(Managing Director, Head of APACEquities at UBS Wealth Management) and Martin W. Hennecke(Head of Asia Investment Advisory at St. James's Place Wealth Management) will explore these cutting-edge issues and provide some guidance for your own decision-making process.
