Asia’s longest-running investor conference will celebrate its 30th anniversary

Hong Kong – 14 August 2023: CITIC CLSA is pleased to announce that the 30th CITIC CLSA Investors’ Forum will be held at Rosewood Hong Kong from 11-14 September (Monday-Thursday). In celebrating its 30th anniversary, Asia’s longest-running investor conference will build on past successes with an exceptional lineup of high-profile speakers and award-winning CITIC CLSA analysts, who will offer new perspectives to over 1,000+ senior executives from 320+ leading companies and 1,800+ institutional investors from around the world.

The world will soon face a pivotal entry into the global bear market’s third and final stage. Economies driven by domestic demand are a potential shelter, and emerging markets are primed for outperformance.

Now more than ever, investors must navigate new economic regimes and identify key opportunities for strong returns.

The four-day conference offers high-level discussions and debates on investors’ top concerns, ranging from economics, finance and international relations to society, technology and innovation. Beyond CITIC CLSA’s traditional strength of unpacking critical macro, geopolitical and strategic issues, the Forum will also address important sector trends and themes, including ChatGPT; the shifting semiconductor environment; healthcare innovation; and global real estate evolution amid rising rates.
