The theme: Funding the Future
Last year’s theme was Capitalizing on Change, where topics such as the relation between the economy and financial markets, various megatrends, Dutch pension funds and their investments and real estate within an investment portfolio were discussed.
After a year of all-time highs and predominantly tailwinds for financial markets, we are experiencing a different environment. A tight labor market, high inflation, central banks adjusting their monetary policy while the economies are growing above trend and companies still report decent earnings. What will all of this mean for financial markets? Is the market transitioning back to pre-pandemic or preparing for a new phase? Let’s not forget, the secular trends such as metaverse, big data, changing demographics as well as an increase in environment regulations, significantly higher energy prices, will this speed up the transition to a low carbon economy? All in all, 2022 will be an interesting year for financial markets where transition is a keyword. During the upcoming symposium, we have the opportunity to discuss the various topics that are driving the market today and in the future to ambitious students. The next generation of investors. Funding the Future.
