Both exhibitors and organizers declared themselves satisfied with how the fair had gone. Â«Although we communicate very intensively with all stakeholders, the Structured Products Fair always provides an opportunity to clarify any questions, make contact with new clients and maintain a dialog with existing onesÂ», says Christian Reuss, CEO of Scoach.
The keynote speech by Marc Faber on the best asset classes for boom and doom attracted a large audience, as did the speech by Swiss scientist Bertrand Piccard on ways to assure a sustainable future. The roundtables on issues such as Â«Strong Franc â Curse or Blessing?Â» or Â«Women as InvestorsÂ» were also very well attended. Presenter Roman Kilchsperger and satirist Andreas Thiel guaranteed an element of entertainment by providing tongue-in-cheek insight into their personal approach to investing.
The motto (question) for this yearâs fair was Â«Are Your Investments Already Structured?Â» Â«The Structured Products Fair provides a unique platform for contact and the exchange of opinions between the issuers and market participants and both private and professional investors. The provision of information is an ongoing task for usÂ», emphasizes Daniel Sandmeier, SSPA President.
