The i3 Summit seeks to offer financial intermediaries independent views on the direction of the world economy, long-term investment opportunities and issues that are relevant to the audience, such as the rise of robo-advisers. It also provides an avenue to share international insights into portfolio construction and the management of clients’ risk.
The forum concluded with panel discussions featuring captains of industry who gave insight into their companies and they also shared lessons on how they are navigating the political, economic and changing industry.
