The Next Generation Summits are part of Julius Baer’s Next Generation initiative to look beyond the short term and explore prospective trends that have potentially far-reaching implications.

On 16 October and 17 October 2014, Julius Baer hosted the next in the Next Generation Conference series in Shanghai.

Boris F.J. Collardi, CEO Julius Baer:

“It was an honour to offer our guests a platform to look into different industries that are not directly related to our activity as a wealth manager. We will continue to invest in the Next Generation Initiative because it provides us with the knowledge to more easily navigate the financial markets with our clients in the long term.”

Tom Meier, Region Head, Asia Pacific:

“With our Julius Baer Next Generation Series of events – for the 2nd time in Asia – we would like to keep our clients ahead of megatrends occurring in the world and ultimately in the world of investments. In Shanghai, our valued guests had the chance to meet with corporate leaders and creative visionaries who are impacting information technology, food science, the future of entertainment and well-being. It is our hope to be bold, and to stay bold, and to encourage our clients to feel bold in their decisions as well.”

Follow-up Events

A series of smaller business events are scheduled for 2015. The content will be based on the bold ideas discussed during the summit as well as other Next Generation topics.
