Credit & Markets Breakfast Tour 2022

05. September Hannover, 06. September Düsseldorf, 07. September München

Private Debt ist eine so gefragte wie aber auch komplexe Anlageklasse: Sie erfordert besonderes Knowhow. Vor allem die Diversifizierung ist bei Private Debt angesichts zahlreicher Strategien mit unterschiedlichen Risiko- und Ertragstreibern entscheidend. Private Debt ermöglicht Anlegern über Marktzyklen hinweg eine risikobereinigte positive Rendite. Erfahren Sie mehr über herausragende Private Debt Anlagestrategien.

Nutzen Sie die Gelegenheit zum direkten Austausch mit den teilnehmenden Gesellschaften und besuchen Sie die Credit & Markets Breakfast Tour 2022 in Hannover, Düsseldorf oder München.

Nachstehend finden Sie weitere Einzelheiten zu den Referenten und zum Programm. Die Veranstaltung ist für alle Teilnehmer kostenlos, ausschließlich auf Einladung. Wir würden uns freuen, wenn Sie sich diesen Termin vormerken würden.
