English-speaking conference with Edmund Shing (BNP Paribas Wealth Management)


The MEB and BNP Paribas Wealth Management are very happy to invite you to the first of, we hope, many English-speaking conferences by eminent anglophone speakers.

We shall begin this new cycle of conferences with Edmund Shing, Chief Investment Officer of BNP Paribas Wealth Management, who will give a talk on: “Adapting to the New Rules of the Global Economy?”

The idea that the global economy has broken with the last 40 years of disinflation/deflation, falling/zero interest rates, the peace dividend and easy money. In this new era, scarcity of resources is the key.
