17th SWISS FUND DAY 2023

Mutual Funds – Still a Valid Model?





THIS Year's Topic:

Investing in Tomorrow

Mutual Funds — Still a Valid Model?

Mutual funds have long been a popular investment choice, providing individual investors with a wide range of investment opportunities across asset classes, regions, and sectors. However with the rise of new technologies, alternative investment models like exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and innovative approaches like factor investing, quant strategies or smart beta have started to gain a stronghold in the market. As a result, some have questioned whether mutual funds are still a relevant and effective investment model.

This conference will bring together leading experts to discuss the latest trends, innovations, and challenges in the fund industry. We will explore the different investment models available, the ethical and regulatory issues relating to investing, and the tools and strategies for building successful portfolios that generate shareholder value.
