European Investment Summit
& Investor Day 2019

European Investment Summit

Dealing with Disruption

As major secular drivers look set to disrupt the global economy over the next 3-5 years, are you prepared to deal with the disruption?

China, evolving populist movements, aging societies, technological change, financial market vulnerability, and climate instability all have potential to disrupt economies and markets. These risks, combined with stretched valuations, have created a difficult environment for investors. How will you respond?

The European Investment Summit brings together some of world’s pre-eminent thought leaders across geo-politics, behavioural science, economics and investing to consider how active investors can navigate this disruption in pursuit of attractive opportunities.

 

Investor Day

 

Whilst the European Investment Summit brings together some of world’s pre-eminent thought leaders to consider how active investors can navigate this disruption, the Investor Day will explore four sustainable strategies to navigate through radical uncertainties.

Senior PIMCO portfolio managers and investment strategies will discuss:

Income: How to reduce risk without compromising returns
Credit & Emerging Markets: Why selection is more important than ever
Dynamic strategies: For those with ability and willingness to be more flexible
ESG: PIMCO’s approach
