Excellence in times of change

Financial service providers in Switzerland and elsewhere are facing far-reaching upheavals. Regulations, low interest rates, political insecurity and poor returns due to structural changes in business models are proving challenging for banks, insurance companies and pension funds alike. Innovation and fast-paced technological developments are accelerating these developments yet further. What conditions do the players in the Swiss financial industry need to continue leading the way internationally in such a challenging environment? How can the financial world of tomorrow offer excellent services? And to whom? What opportunities and challenges will the financial sector encounter over the next few years? Under the motto “Excellence in times of change", the Swiss International Finance Forum 2017 will explore the three key points monetary policy, investment crisis and international competition.

Proven experts from Switzerland and abroad will address these and related issues from various perspectives and discuss solutions. There will also be plenty of opportunities for cross-sectoral networking and face-to-face talks in an exclusive setting.

In autumn 2012, the Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ) organised a two-day capital market conference with an international scope at the Zurich Congress Centre. Numerous decision-makers and leading figures from the financial markets sector including Walter Kielholz, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Swiss Re, Thomas Jordan, the newly-appointed Head of the Swiss National Bank, and Luc Frieden, the Finance Minister of Luxembourg to name but a few, spoke on the theme of “Key Decisions for Tomorrow”.

The event focussed on economic development, the challenges facing the international capital markets and last but not least the role of the Swiss financial centre. Furthermore, particular attention was paid to the challenges facing local multinational companies in the current global competitive environment. Numerous speakers presented first hand appraisals from the standpoint of entrepreneurs.
