Knowledge Transfer Program

The post-Covid-19, inflationary world continues to be full of new challenges, but also opportunities, for sovereign investors. We believe that central banks, sovereign wealth funds and other state-controlled investment vehicles should focus on how to best deal with these challenges and how to grasp the opportunities.

In this volatile investment environment, the need for tailored advice and knowledge transfer remains high, so we are continuing to offer this topical series of modules in 2022 to support our wider educational conference program.
