Citywire will hold its annual Swiss conference at the Gstaad Palace on 13-14 September.

Citywire Switzerland, which is now in its seventh year, will allow more than 100 Swiss fund selectors and IAMs to catch-up, interact and also meet with 18 fund managers covering a range of major asset classes, regions and investment styles.

As always the event will also feature keynote speaker sessions bringing you the views of leading thinkers and innovators giving you some valuable food for thought.

This will include ‘historian of the future’ James Bellini and Frank Salzgeber, who is head of the European Space Agency's (ESA) Technology Transfer Programme Office.
