Mutual Funds – Future-Proof 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 and alternative investment models, some have questioned whether mutual funds are still relevant and effective.

We look forward to exploring with you the future possibilities of mutual funds and the latest trends in the fund and assets industry through peer presentations, our traditional panel-discussion and in personal conversations in the befitting setting of the AURA event hall.
